Mystic River Pinot Blanc

Wine: Mystic River Pinot Blanc 2017

Winery: Wild Goose, Okanagan Falls

Why drink it? Pinot blanc, which is a genetic mutation of pinot noir, often flies under the radar…much like this winery, which keeps quietly racking up awards and is home a fantastic BBQ bistro. Aromas of honeydew melon linger with the mineral-like scent in the air after a sudden rainstorm hits hot asphalt. You could compare the flavours to some chardonnays, but this is lighter and medium-bodied with vibrant acidity. Crisp and refreshing, try it next to the winery’s very first sauvignon blanc and decide which one you prefer for patio season.

Price: $18

Pair with: All you need to enjoy this wine is a few friends on the deck, a full ice bucket, and a selection of easy snacks: veggies and kettle-cooked potato chips with a side of asiago dip, slices of melon, and if the mood strikes, grill up a couple of mild sausages to share with lemon cornbread.

Music pairing: Pride and Joy, Stevie Ray Vaughn
