Fitzpatrick Runabout White 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the winery's Greata Ranch estate, this year's Runabout White is a blend of pinot blanc, chardonnay, gew├╝rztraminer, riesling, and ehrenfelser, fermented in stainless, and clocking in at a light 10.5%. The 8.5 g/L RS plants this in the aromatic off-dry white category, something BC seems to produce endless versions of, for some reason. This one is orchard fresh, with crunchy yellow apple, white peach, melon, orange blossom, and a dusting of gingersnap on the bright finish. Nice balance and friendliness; chill and crack into this summer with Thai salads.Tasted: 09 July 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 16.50 winery online/direct Producer: Fitzpatrick Family VineyardsDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
