Covert Farms Pinot Blanc 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCoyote Block was planted in 2006 over glaciofluvial sedimentary soil at an elevation 415-420m above sea level. It is regeneratively farmed and certified organic and was harvested at 23 Brix on Oct 23. The fermentation is 90/10 stainless steel and neutral oak, and it is all aged sur lie. After a few fits and starts, the growing season finished dry and warm and is considered one of the best of all time. Expect riper, yellow fruit with sweet melon and pear and the richness to stand up to spicier dishes. More chardonnay-like in 2020.Tasted: 25 May 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.70 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Covert Farms Family EstateDistributors: BCWineshop
