Hester Creek Old Vines Block 16 Trebbiano 2019

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlock 16 Trebbiano has transformed itself from a soft, slightly sweet white under cork a decade ago to one of Canada's white wine wonders now under screwcap. The vines were planted in 1968 on the now sub-GI Golden Mile Bench. The latest wine is destemmed and fermented cool in stainless before ageing in the tank for three months. The result is vibrant, fresh, honeysuckle, melon, nectarine, apricot that feigns sweetness yet remains dry and clean. This one makes the afternoon slide away, or serve with grilled shrimp or prawns.Tasted: 14 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.99 winery direct, BC/AB: private wine shops, restaurants Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
