OLD VINES AUXERROIS
A classic wine with a soft mellow acidity, rich in subtle fruit flavours and vinted in an off-dry style. Auxerrois has adapted to the Okanagan extremely well. Each fall brings this grape to maturity with a perfect acid balance. A wine to serve when one is not sure of one’s preference. A taste profile that doesn’t tire a palate.
This wine style is not intense fruit, but rather a rich mellow wine bouquet. The wine has a pleasant, dry mouth feel, with just a touch of sweetness evident, to polish the finish.
It is a great accompaniment to seafood, especially scallops and shell fish. Also a perfect choice with consommés, cream sauce dishes, and delicate-flavoured foods.
