Whistler throw-back. Loving this.
The Canucks. Akin to spilling some paint, it’s impact is widespread. Really enjoy the sweet citrus notes.

Charme de L'Île Rosé Blend

KD
9.0

Deep salmon colour with aromas of dried strawberries, ligonberries, peaches, hibiscus and some yeast. Vivacious bubbles, light airy body with refreshing acidity. On the palate, more strawberries, cranberries, nectarine with some orange peel, minerality and a touch of candied apple on the short-medium finish. Nice to see a good rosé charmat sparkling from the Island! — 5 months ago

Chateau Wolff Estate

Viognier Blend 2019

Tons of tropical flavour. Pineapple and peach. But not enough body. Nice on a hot summer patio, but doesn't hold up against most food except mild, sit cheese. — 2 months ago

Cantina Terlan

Tradition Alto Adige Pinot Grigio

2020 vintage from Cantina Produttori Terlano in south Tirol in Alto Adige.

This is a coop founded 1893 with 143 growers and 165 hectares in the Dolomites Mountains in the foothills of the Alps.
Nose of pears, Macintosh apples, almonds and wild herbs.
Elegant flavours of ripe melon, peach, apples with minerality and balanced acidity.
In the foreground of the picture is Albacore tuna caught by my friend Fraser 200 km north off the coast of Vancouver Island in September..
That Albacore tuna was smoked by my friend Masa in North Vancouver.
This Pinot Grigio is fantastic with the smoked Albacore tuna.
