Le Vieux Pin Sauvignon Blanc 2023

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Severine Pinte was inspired to make this wine, having tasted the wines of the late legendary Loire winemaker Didier Dagueneau. Grassy grapefruit marks the nose and spills onto the palate, with a citrus herby undercurrent running through its leesy mid-palate and finish. Dry with a touch of bitterness, it is built for local shellfish. The wine is aged for 6 months on its lees and regularly stirred in a mix of 43% stainless steel tanks, 15% French barriques, and 42% larger (puncheon) barrels. Delicious and ready to drink.Tasted: 04 May 2024Tasted by: Prices:
