Thought I might be able to add something to previous tasting notes but the search engine here is a real jungle!!! Anyhows I have your attention so just a reminder that Cedar Creek in the Okanagan rocks.
WTN: `04 Pinot Gris Cedar Creek, Okanagan BC.
13%, this winery is very consistent in their red/white production. One should try to look out for the Pinot Noir especially.
Colour. Pale straw w. watery rim. Minimum clinging legs, nice sparkle.
Nose. Spice, peach, apricot, some tropical fruits as it airs.
Palate. Has some ot that stone fruit quality one finds in NZ PG. Excellent acidity, tangy bite on the minerally finish with nice citrus lime tones. Apple, pear, dryish style. My impressions are consistent with my `03 notes posted last year (somewhere!!).
Cost was $18 Cdn.
WTN: `04 Ehrenfelser Cedar Creek.
Another of my annual favs. Usual pale lemon colour, nose of honey, spice, pear and some citrus. On the palate crisp and dry with minerals, apples. Some might think riesling but distinct in its own way. Wonder why we do not see more notes on this varietal? Is it produced on the east coast?
