This is the second look we have had at this wine, whose vines were set down in 1978 in East Kelowna. The nose is a cross between Rheinhessen and Australia’s Clare Valley. Concentrated and rich, this bone-dry offering is overflowing with minerality, lime, tangerine pith, white honey and green apples. Treve correctly denotes ‘a parmesan-scented lees’ that carries the palate through to a snappy, dry, tart finish. This is a special bottle that will live for many more years. Well done and a fine example of real wine in BC. Pick your food this wine is up to it.
