Precise, racy, fcrunchy.
Specializing in small lot white wines (and a Syrah), Terravista Vineyards is a gem on the vibrant winemaking region anchored to Penticton called the Naramata Bench.
This blend of 63% Albarino and 37% Verdejo is only wine of these grapes produced in Canada. Grapes are grown at Terravista's home vineyard on the Naramata Bench at estate Lone Hand Ranch vineyard. Tough granitic soils of glacial origin characterize the vineyard.
It's a racy and verdant gulp with green apples, still crunchy peaches, wild flowers, grass clippings and lemongrass aromas. Cheek-sucking acidity describes the palate; mineral and citrus flavours dominate. Precise and lip-smacking it has a creamy edge and delicious weight on the tongue.
