    August 13, 2014 - 100% Rousanne from Dineen Vineyard in the Columbia Valley. Medium gold with olive hue. Aromas of melon, cut grass, grapefruit, candel wax and a hint of caramel. Medium/full body, medium+ acidity, bright long finish. Flavours of honeydew and citrus notes with a hint of pear. 30 second finish. Very sophisticated.

    February 16, 2014 - Citrus, orange peel nose, straw yellow color.
    a touch of sweetness with some honey and melon taste. Acidity provides the backbone with a swash of mineral thrown in. enjoyable.

    January 2, 2014 - Delicious flavours of honeydew backed up with lemon zest and a nice acidity. Complex, rich and well-balanced, this is the best New World version of this varietal I have encountered.
