Unsworth Vineyards Wild Island Auxerrois 2022

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Cowichan Valley's Zanatta vineyard, this was native fermented and rested 8 months in neutral French oak. The wee bump of RS is wiped out entirely by the crisp marine acidity, leaving pear blossoms, crunchy Asian pear, subtle melon, and a dusting of ginger spice. The time in neutral wood well suits this, gently softening the edges while providing a lightly spiced depth. Distinctly Wine Islands, this aromatic white is a light bodied charmer.Tasted: 16 December 2023Tasted by: Prices:
