Van Westen Vineyards Vivacious 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaVivacious continues to live up to its moniker with a leaner, fresher style in the last two years. It’s 96 percent pinot blanc with a dash of pinot gris, fermented in both barrel and tank. Expect crisp, fresh citrus with a thread of sagebrush and desert scrub running throughout the wine, with lemons and nectarines filling out the finish. Vivacious comes off the Home Lot Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. Best with food, use it as you would a squeeze of lemon. Good value.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Van Westen VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
