Clos du Soleil Grower's Series Pinot Blanc Middle Bench Vineyard 2019

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPinot blanc continues to be a journey in BC, but as the years run by, this variety is beginning to show more and more promise. A lot of its future depends on simply letting it express itself, or place, along with each growing season. Middle Bench Vineyard in Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, is a stony, south sloping vineyard that is precisely the kind of place that gives this variety life. Expect a dry, crunchy mix of pear, peach and nectarine with a pleasant underlying bitterness to keep the fruit restrained and sophisticated. It is the perfect wine to accompany many vegan dishes and equally at home with grilled fish. I like it with a well-chosen charcuterie plate on the patio in the late afternoon.Tasted: 09 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
