Da Silva Chenin Blanc Hidden Hollow Vineyard 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRichard and Twyla Da Silva are growing the family business from the ground up to the winery. From fruit to grapes to winemaking, the Da Silva family story in the Okanagan began in the 1950s. It continued the work of their ancestors, who have been involved in farming and winemaking on Portugal's Azores Islands since the 1700s. The chenin blanc comes off a Penticton-based site, Hidden Hollow Vineyard. I love the freshness here, the crunchy fruit, the simplicity of winemaking that exposes a wealth of green apple, citrus, pears, and a lime pith finish. Lean and fresh, this is a fun wine for shellfish and seafood appetizer bites. Well done.Tasted: 18 August 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Da Silva Vineyards and WineryDistributors: BCWineshop
