Howling Bluff Sauvignon Blanc Sémillontext

Howling Bluff Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSurprisingly similar in style to the sauvignon blanc label at this stage, but another step up in complexity and mouthfeel. Three vineyards make it into this Naramata blend. The difference here is the addition of Sémillon in the Bordeaux tradition. You will find plenty of citrus here, lemons and limes, mixed with green apples and a touch of pear over a zippy mineral undercurrent that finishes with lovely bitter guava and lime rind. Creamy seafood dishes and some of those more complicated sushi rolls would work here. Food friendly all summer and winter.Tasted: 27 July 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
