Van Westen Vineyards Vivacious 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe latest Vivacious is leaner than previous versions and all the better for it. There is a dash of pint gris in this mostly pinot blanc white, fermented in both barrel and tank. The attack is crisper, as mentioned, than previous versions, with bright, juicy citrus, nectarine, with that now-familiar dusting of Okanagan scrubby sagebrush and grass in the finish. Vivacious comes off the Home Lot Vineyard and boasts that bright Naramata, mid-valley demeanour. I love this wine with curry, so add your favourite protein or vegetable and stir.Tasted: 04 October 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
