Skaha Vineyard 2017 Pinot Blanc, Okanagan Valley, $21
Last year, the Skaha Vineyard 2016 Pinot Blanc won a gold medal or better at three North American competitions, and Gerry and Sue Thygesen continue to show their magnificence with this white grape from Burgundy. This sister label to Krāzē Legz Winery, a stunning property with vineyards overlooking Skaha Lake south of Pentiction, produces their Pinot Blanc in a fruity yet dry example. Peaches, nectarines, apricots abound. There is a peppery element on the finish, and then the stone fruit returns for a bright and lingering encore finish. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
