Da Silva Chenin Blanc Hidden Hollow Vineyard 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Da Silva family fave been farming the Okanagan Valley since they arrived in the 1950s, continuing the work of their ancestors who have been involved in farming and winemaking on Portugal's Azores Islands since the 1700s. This chenin comes from Hidden Hollow Vineyard, in Penticton. It was fermented and rested in stainless to preserve the fresh fruit. Crunchy green apple and Asian pear lead the bright palate, with verbena, lemon, lime pith leading through the humming finish. This is an earlier pick, leaner, greener style of chenin, with the acid line crisp and taut, ideal for canap├ęs and green summer salads.Tasted: 21 August 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Da Silva Vineyards and WineryDistributors: BCWineshop
