JoieFarm 2012 A Noble Blend, Okanagan Valley, $24

By on June 1, 2013

British Columbia wineWe like the double meaning of this wine, as it refers to co-owner Heidi Noble as well as the Alsatian style of wine known as “Edelzwicker” – or, literally, “noble blend.” This version includes Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Schoenberger and Muscat. It offers aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit, nutmeg, cinnamon and apple, followed by flavors of lime zest, spice and orchard fruit. It’s all backed with bright acidity, giving it luscious balance.
