WineDiva's Review

Racy, distinct, dry.
Gold Hill proprietors, the Gill family, have been growing grapes on the slopes of the Golden Mile Bench for 30 years, they made their won wine first in 2009. Today they farm more than 26 hectares around the Okanagan Valley and the wines are made by Val Tait. The warm site produces ripe wines with generally higher alcohol but this singular Savvy doesn't lack freshness.
Pomelo and citrus blossoms, Hawaiian pink salt, burnt honey, nettle, lime peel and gooseberry aromas lead to a racy palate. It has a creamy edge and leesy undertones muddled with white pepper, lime pith and sliced crunchy starfruit sprinkled with salt. Dry with a distinct mineral character and a phenolic finish, it leans more Loire than Marlborough for sure.
Think grilled fish, oysters, asparagus, and warm chevre salads.
