    What’s New in Naramata Wine Country

    As a wine destination, Naramata is about as remote as it gets in BC’s Okanagan Valley. There’s only one road in and one road out and heaven help you if an accident stops traffic in your path. The Naramata bench wine country, which runs north/south on the East side of Lake Okanagan, starts just north of Penticton on a grid of roads hosting a number of great wineries.

I tasted the 2011 L’ Amarybelle twice now, and both twice was left very much impressed, this Saint-Joseph old vine Syrah is just beautiful in everyday, very much like a Cote-Rotie in style with elegance, delicacy and clear with a long persistent finish.

      Wine of the Week 18 – a white wine with a difference

      Quentin Sadler's Wine Page - - 5 readers - Vineyards near Béziers. I have recently been touring the beautiful Saint-Chianian area of France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region. I learnt a lot about the place and tasted a wide range of the wines produced there. It seemed to me that the general quality was very high, but much to my surprise it was the white wines that particularly excited me.

We tasted through Terravista’s three white wines, the luscious Albarino-Verdejo blend, Fandango and the refreshing Roussanne, Viognier, and Marsanne blend called Figaro. We opted for their single varietal Viognier to drink with lunch and asked…

These vines seem to show more of a French influence though the addition of Albarino clearly comes from Spanish immigrants. Maybe Uruguay should explore more Spanish and Italian white…

So far I have only tried one of their wines, but it is a fabulous wine that is made from Roussanne, one of the wonderful white grapes used in the South…

And some quite intriguing nuances. 2010 St. Preignan – 4.00€ Mainly Roussanne, with some Chardonnay and Viognier. Quite ripe, rounded and textured. Possibly not enough acidity. 25% of the wine is given a six months élevage in new wood…

      … is in the Minervois region in the Languedoc and the wine is Marsanne 50% and Roussanne 50% and both barrel fermented and barrel aged and you can surely tell. Come to find out that slight cloudiness is caused by natural proteins in the wine and is really cool looking. It is a golden coloured wine (think apple juice) but even more than that it is slightly thick…
