River Stone Sauvignon Blanc 2023

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Southern Okanagan estate Boulder City vineyard, and its sandy loam soils, these destemmed grapes were cold soaked for several hours and settled before heading to stainless for innoculation and cool fermentation. It remained in stainless for a few months before bottling. Quite phenolic, with crunchy orchard fruit, grapefruit, melon, and green papaya on a snappy, compact palate, all with a welcome kiss of Southern Okanagan ripeness. One to try with green curries, or spot prawns.Tasted: 14 May 2024Tasted by: Prices:
