Written By Gary Hynes Libations / White Wine Sep 28, 2012 Four White Wines For Your Weekend Table SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest—BY LARRY ARNOLD Pieropan Soave Classico 2009 Italy *$25.00-27.00A touch on the pricey side but if you are looking for good straightforward Soave, Pieropan is the gold standard. Crisp and dry with refreshing citrus, straw, pear and mineral notes on the palate. Well-balanced with some weight, a slightly oily texture and good length.Website Orofino Blind Creek Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Similkameen *$24.00-26.00Unfortunately this charming Sauvignon Blanc from the Similkameen Valley is no longer available at the winery (look for it in restaurants) and with one sip it’s easy to figure out why. Made from fruit sourced from Blind Creek Vineyard on the Cawston Bench and fermented and aged in stainless steel, Orofino’s Sauvignon Blanc is clean and fresh with mouthwatering acidity and bright fruit flavours.Website Veramonte La Gloria Sauvignon Blanc Res 2011 Chile $14.00-16.00A solid well-put together winner made from fruit grown in the Casablanca Valley in Aconcagua, Chile. Clean and fresh with grapefruit, gooseberry and floral aromas and tropical and citrus fruit flavours. Medium-bodied with a hint of sweetness through the long crisp finish.Website Terravista Vineyards Fandango Alberino-Verdejo 2011 Okanagan *$27.00-30.00Bob & Senka Tennant of Black Hills fame have released the country’s first Alberino-Verdejo from their Terravista Vineyard in Penticton. Very floral with lime and apple blossom notes. Great mouth-feel with some weight and refreshing acidity. Nicely balanced with great fruit and a long dry finish.Website DRINKing Guide: How to use our purchasing information. *Asterisks denote wines that are only available at the winery or select private liquor stores.
