Hester Creek Character 2018

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA challenging year that started slow, heated up, and dried out all summer before finishing fresh. The 2018 Character Red mixes four varieties of Golden Mile fruit. The blend is a mix of old vine merlot, syrah, petit verdot, and malbec, handpicked and handled gently, as emphasized by its round edges and soft textures. The flavours are a bright mix of savoury dark fruit, dried herbs with a dusting of vanilla. You can drink this now, and the winery suggests you do it with smoked ribs or pulled pork. Excellent value.Tasted: 28 November 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.95 BCLS, private wine stores, winery direct Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
