Culmina Family Estate Unicus Gruner Veltliner 2019

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine gets more and more dialled in year over year. From their higher altitude estate Margaret's Bench vineyard, this GV, one of the only in the province, was fermented in a mix of concrete egg, concrete amphora, stainless, and neutral French oak. Layers of pear, quince, lemon are interwoven with herbal, downy lees, and shaped with citrus binding. Mineral salts and white pepper add the seasoning, while the concrete added ample texture to the palate. Fantastic balance, and interest.Tasted: 13 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.00 winery online Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
