WineDiva's Review

Precise, transparent, crunchy.
Having forged the Kamloops Wine Trail (and as of 2018 the Thompson Valley sub-GI), Harper’s Trail has been doing delicious things with estate Riesling and Pinot Noir (among others) on the southern banks of the Thompson River for more than a decade.
Today the wines are uder guidance of Pascal Madevon, and previously Michael Bartier.
The estate is named for another pioneer, cattle drive rancher, Thaddeus Harper who lived in the region in the 1800s.
Consistently a stand-out, this Pioneer Block Riesling rolls out marmalade and honey lime, peach stone and crunchy green apples. Lively, dry and pristine the palate echoes the nose with crunchy stone fruits and citrus flavours. Excellent concentration and weight; the finish is mouthwatering.
