Fort Berens Grüner Veltliner 2020

British Columbia, CanadaThis grüner veltliner comes out of the southern Okanagan at Bordertown Vineyard, from the super warm Osoyoos region. That said, FB has done a decent job of giving the wine a hint of the lean, spare coolness of Grüner while fighting off the ripe, warm flavours of the South Okanagan. The attack is medium rich and but there is a touch of minerality and desert scrub throughout its creamy, soft, pear palate. Traditional Grüner fans will want a more pointy end to this wine, but many will like it just how it is. There will be a Lillooet version in time, so keep the faith. Love the price.Tasted: 07 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.99 winery online/direct, select private retailers, grocery Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
