Peak Cellars Grüner Veltliner 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the granitic soils of Carr's Landing Vineyard, this Grüner Veltliner was picked just before the Okanagan's recording-breaking snowfall on October 23. Fermentation was in a combination of stainless steel, 1, and 2 year old barrels, before being blended into stainless in January. This really speaks to the cooler growing conditions of Lake Country. Far from exuding long hangtime, this is quite restrained in style, led by grapefruit, peach, delicate white pepper, and fine herbs. Crisp, refreshing, and well made, this is perfect for lighter salads.Tasted: 03 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: O'Rourke's Peak CellarsDistributors: Revelry Import Company
