Hester Creek Pinot Blanc 2021

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Blocks 4 and 9 at their estate Golden Mile Bench Vineyard, these old vines date back to 1968, with Block 9 planted in 1997/98 (Alsace Clone 54). Destemmed, whole berry fruit was cold settled with a long, cool ferment in stainless where it remained until bottling. Juicy and lively, with lime zest, lime blossom, green apple, tangerine rind flooding the medium palate, finishing with alluring white pepper spicing. No pinot blah here, this smart wine has concentration, fruit, and freshness, and ample smashability. Crack this summer.Tasted: 08 March 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
