WineDiva's Review

Zesty, juicy, restrained.
The da Silva estate is located on the Naramata Bench and is owned by Richard and Twylla da Silva. Da Silva's story begins in 1955 when the family moved from Portugal to the Okanagan Valley--in 1959 they purchased an orchard. Almost 50 years later, in 2006, the family built a winery and today they draw fruit from 11 different vineyards/growers located in: Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos and Penticton.
The winery is also home to The Kitchen at da Silva, where a fusion of Mexican~Portuguese tapas is the theme.
The estate Hidden Hollow Vineyard on the Naramata Bench is home to these Chaenin Blanc vines. It's grown on sandy loam soils and saw only stainless steel in production.
It's a Chenin with notan;e restraint--notes of crunchy unripe nectarine and lemon are layered with starfruit, spring flowers and beeswax. The palate is juicy and dominated by citrus flavours; it has a slippery texture and notably zesty finish.
