Clos du Soleil Grower's Series Pinot Blanc Middle Bench Vineyard 2020

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaKeremeos' Middle Bench Vineyard, in Similkameen, yields this fruit-forward pinot blanc. This was whole cluster pressed and cool fermented in stainless, where it rested until the following March on lees. Crunchy Asian pear, green apple, gooseberry, grapefruit, green hedge, and underripe pear rule the snappy palate, with brisk, frisky acidity and seasoned with pithy citrus fruit through the lingering finish. Reminiscent of sauvignon blanc this year.Tasted: 26 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
