Township 7 Vineyards & Winery 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Okanagan Valley, $18

By on February 18, 2018

Township 7 has undergone a remodel and rebranding under Mike Raffan, and he also recruited Mary McDermott from Ontario to take over the winemaking at this longtime property on British Columbia’s Naramata Bench. They remain committed to working with clone 297 fruit planted in Rock Pocket and Blue Terrace vineyards in the southern portion of the Okanagan Valley, and the harvest completed by Sept. 9 at 21 Brix leads to a racy Sauvignon Blanc that one has come to expect from the Okanagan Valley. There’s no meow here, but rather a steady push of gooseberry and charming citrus hints of grapefruit, Key lime and lemon. The mouthwatering finish completes this nice presentation. Suggested pairings range from mild cheeses, seared scallops with cilantro and lemon-glazed chicken breast.
