Uncork This – Clos du Soleil Grower’s Series Baessler Pinot Blanc 2010 | The Hobbyists

While Chardonnary, Pinot Gris and Riesling often grab the most attention in discussions of BC’s white grapes, we have often thought that Pinot Blanc is really the most succesful white grape in the Okanagan / Similkameen climates.  This wine goes a long way to support that theory. The grower’s series is a single vineyard series intended to highlight some of the select parcels of land from which Clos du Soleil Winery sources their grapes and this wine pays beautiful tribute to Baessler family.

On the nose, notes of pear, almond, honey and lime are crisp, sweet and enticing. On the palate you are immediately struck by the wonderful oily mouthfeel that coats the palate and helps the refreshing citrus finish linger. Flavours of canned pears, sweet lime and apple dominate, with hints of mandarin and honey. Great balance. We had this with Israeli couscus, fire roasted vegetables and homemade preserved lemons – an excellent pairing, but we’re thinking there are a lot of things that would pair well with this.  This wine is soulful, yet fresh and lively – pair it with We’re New Here Jamie XX’s reinterpretation of Gil Scott-Heron’s equally great I’m New Here. You won’t be disappointed in either.
