Black Hills Estate Winery Alias 2017

Product description

A wide array of intense fruit aromas is the hallmark of the Alias blend, and the 2017 version does not disappoint. No less than seven different grape varieties combine to produce an impressive range of aromas - lemon curd, fresh flowers, green apple, lime juice, ginger and exotic spices all leap out of the glass. On the palate fresh acidity combines seamlessly with a hint of sweetness, and the long finish shows further complexity through pineapple and honey flavours. A fantastic appetizer wine, Alias is best enjoyed chilled while in its youth.

2017 was a great vintage for Okanagan white wines. The warm and dry summer resulted in concentrated and ripe berries, while the cool August and September helped the grapes retain crisp natural acidity and high aromatic intensity. The aromatic white wines present in Alias all show the benefits of these seasonal influences.

Blend:   24% Chasselas, 18% Riesling, 17% Muscat, 15% Gewurztraminer, 12% Pinot Blanc, 9% Pinot Gris, 5% Schonburger
