Anakena Riesling 2006

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

Yellow-gold appearance with medium mineral nose and a hint of grapefruit. Strong acidity, light body. Dry mineral-citrus with nice length. About $21 at Kitsilano Wine Cellar. Recommended. See Anakena Wines.

Joie Dedication Pinot Blanc 2007

Monday, December 8th, 2008

Medium lemon-gold appearance, with a citrus-apple-oak nose. Dry with good acidity, medium body. Nice fruity quality, but overcome a bit by oaking. I think I am developing a distaste for oaked wines. Very nice, otherwise; recommended.
