Nk'Mip Cellars Mer'r'iym White Meritage 2017

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGive credit to the farming and winemaking team for this handsome White Meritage that impressed me in a blind flight at the National Wine Awards of Canada finals. The entire 6-wine flight was uniformly high-quality, but I loved the energy and drive of this blend of 62% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Semillon. I noted a clear BC character with pungent botanicals, focused acidity, and a gorgeous, creamy texture. The Semillon was barrel-fermented in new French barrels, but melded happily into the unoaked Sauvignon, not for a moment obscuring the gooseberry, lively citrus, beeswax and honeycomb complexity. A well-made food wine for your next dinner of grilled chicken with salsa verde.Tasted: 09 October 2019Tasted by: Prices:
