Moon Curser Afraid of the Dark 2018

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaI admire this delicious effort from Moon Curser - a tiny winery whose main fascination lies in plumbing the potential for unusual grapes in the South Okanagan like dolcetto, arneis and touriga. Are You Afraid of the Dark deliciously unites the Rhône trio of viognier, roussanne and marsanne. This well-priced white blend looks silvery with peach highlights. The nose shows a touch of petrol and nicely defined stone fruit, honeycomb, chamomile, fennel fronds and custard apple. Stones and understated tropical hints weave throughout a cream-textured, unoaked palate, refreshed by limey acidity. The finish is persistent and warm with fennel bulb, peach schnapps and orange peel all vying for your attention. Pair with weighty cuisines like pork chops with braised red cabbage or cheese fondue.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: DJ KearneyPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS, winery direct, private wine shop Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
