2017 FORTIFIED RED PLUM MISTELLE (Organic) - Gold / Best of Class! / 92 Points
This wine is made from 100% Simikameen Valley certified organically grown Asian plum varieties and is characteristic of the fresh delicate aromas and flavors of the tree ripened plum. Accenturated with hints of passionfruit, watermelon, strawberry and cranberry, the cine compliments the palate with a refreshing balance and a long pleasing finish.
Palate: Ripe plums, tropical fruit and notes of cranberry, strawberry and watermelon.
Accompaniment: Cheesecake, goat cheese, and blue cheese.
Serve: Wonderful as a digestif or served as a martini, shaken on ice with a twist of lemon.
”Lovely fresh, tart, somewhat sweet style, but balanced. Packed full of citrus, spicy, peppery, mineral, canned plum, strawberry flavours. Serve solo and well chilled for dessert”. - Anthony Gismondi, B.C. / Wine pick of the week, Vancouver Sun.

John Schreiner on wine: The plum flavours are intense and there is lingering sweetness on the finish. The wine is nicely balanced and can be sipped on its own. I like the recommendation on the back label: make a vodka martini with this - 90 points!
