For a refresher on the Trebbiano, go check out my Tasting Notes from February's VIWF. It is delicious. My three compadres got to taste it for the first time and all enjoyed it. We bought mucho bottles of this.
And, of course, they do have some other wine as well.....let's check that out.
|Hester Creek 2017 Pinot Gris ($18.95)|
|Hester Creek 2017 Pinot Blanc ($17.95)|
|Hester Creek 2016 Chardonnay ($24.95)|
|Hester Creek 2017 Cabernet Franc Rosé ($19.95)|
|Hester Creek 2016 Selected Barrels Merlot ($19.95)|
|Hester Creek 2016 Selected Barrels Cabernet Merlot ($19.95)|
Violets, blackberry, black cherry and fresh dill on the nose. Blackberry dominates the palate, but look closely and you'll catch some cassis, plum and mint as well. This one is almost begging to be opened up on the patio during a late-summer BBQ.
|Hester Creek 2016 Late Harvest Pinot Blanc ($18.95)|
There is a consistancy of quality here which is refreshing (look at the scores!). You know what you are going to get here, year in and year out. And if you check out the link I left above with my review of the Trebbiano, you will notice another higher score for their big Bordeaux blend, The Judge (which was not open for tasting during this visit).
Next up: A very short visit to Moon Curser! Just a few more reports before this particular Okanagan trip is finally put to bed.
AND.......some big changes coming to this blog in the near future, hopefully. No details yet... that's what we in the biz call "a teaser". :)
