Complex white blend opens with floral notes and light stone fruit (apricot. peach smell..). Similar to a viognier from California this gewurtz, riesling, pinot gris and pinot auxerrois blend was very good - a litte petrol tint took a bit away ..would have preferred a crisper mouth feel.
Delicious! Pale golden colour doesn't suggest what the nose and palate deliver. This is a beatifully aromomatic. Floral, pear, spice, lanolin. A Blend of Alsacian grapes but produced in British Columbia. Food friendly with just a hint of sweetness balanced by some tangy acidity. Well worth seeking out.
My favourite wine at the moment. The 2006 Riesling is also quite lovely, which makes for a nice alternative as A Noble Blend is sold out almost everywhere (although the large bottle is still available at places like Liberty).
