Van Westen Vineyards Vivacious 2021

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaVivacious is primarily pinot blanc, tipped with 4% pinot gris, coming off their rocky estate Homelot vineyard above Naramata Road. It was fermented in a mix of tank and barrel, with partial MLF and lees contact. Crunchy orchard pear, red apple, pink grapefruit is scented with Okanagan desert scrub, all lain out along a medium bodied palate through a saline kissed finish. Fresh and friendly, but not dumbed down, this sings of Naramata.Tasted: 16 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
