Lock and Worth Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLow key labels = low-fi winemaking at this singular winery, with grapes coming from select growers around the Okanagan. The 2019 Sauv / Sem comes from Naramata, and was 1/3 whole cluster pressed and rested in neutral French oak prior to bottling without fining or filtration. Tight and streamlined on the youthful palate, with herbal grasses, kumquat, lemongrass skipping along a light lees base to a subtle green hedge / grapefruit pithy finish. Delish now in youth, but as previous vintages have shown, this has a wonderful line ahead of it.Tasted: 19 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 20.00 private wine shops Producer: Lock & WorthDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
