Tangy, lively, zesty.
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.
This mildly sparkling wine hails from the Hidden Hollow Vineyard on the Naramata Bench and is 75% Riesling and 25% is Muscat; the wine saw only stainless steel.
Notes here are a fruit-cup of peach, pear and apples along with honey, wildflowers and snap peas. It's approachable and juicy with flavours to mimic the nose. A lively and charming fizz with crunchy acidity.
