Food Pairings for St. Hubertus Chasselas
External Reviews for St. Hubertus Chasselas
Rarely seen in Canada, Chasselas is the primary white variety in Switzerland, where it is also known as Fendant. It is believed to be in only two Okanagan vineyards, one of which is St. Hubertus, a winery operated by two brothers originally from Switzerland. Leo Gebert was trained – it sounds like a Swiss cliché – as a banker. He preferred farming but found Swiss land prices prohibitive. Attracted by British Columbia’s mountains, he purchased a historic vineyard near Kelowna in 1984. His younger brother, Andy, formerly a yacht skipper in the Caribbean, joined him and they opened the winery in 1991.The brothers have enjoyed considerable success with Chasselas, even exporting it to Switzerland. Invariably, the wine is light and refreshing. Their 2006 Chasselas, with 10.6% alcohol, is easy to quaff. Soft in texture, it has aromas and flavours of McIntosh apples, finishing with an appealing freshness. 87 points.
