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

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis pinot blanc is a winner year in and year out, and 2020 is no different. From Middle Bench Vineyard in Keremeos, this vintage shows a notch more ripeness, fruit intensity, and aromatics than I recall from recent vintages, with nectarine and a slight tropicality. But it's still restrained and lively with green apple and citrus notes that are classic to the variety. Medium-bodied and textural, this stands out for its purity of fruit, with remarkable freshness (and just 12.4% abv) as well as a clean, saline finish. Recommended and a steal at this price.Tasted: 27 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.90 winery online Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
