HOWLING BLUFF ESTATE WINES, SAUVIGNON BLANC SEMILLON, OKANAGAN VALLEY, BC, 2013
This week's wine of the week is a refreshing remedy for surviving this awesome summer heat wave!
Howling Bluff Estate Winery's Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend was awarded a Lieutenant Governor Award of Excellence in BC wines a couple of months ago and from the first sip we can see why! Owner/Winemaker Luke Smith wouldn't know how to cut a corner if he tried and the Sauv/Sem is no exception. Made exclusively from estate-grown grapes, this exotic white wine is produced in very limited quantities from their Summa Quies vineyard on the Naramata Bench. Bursting with juicy mandarin and citrus peel on the nose, the palate opens up generously with flavors of kiwi, pineapple and lime mingled with a linear background of mineral and herbal notes. The mouth feel offers a luscious texture making this wine an ideal match with anything from light summer salads to grilled fish and poultry. Join us for a glass at YEW this week!
2 oz $5.5 / 4 oz $11 / 6 oz $16.5 / Bottle $66
