A couple of weeks ago I attended the Bloom tasting in Vancouver. Organized by the BC Wine Institute, this annual travelling tasting brings VQA winemakers to trade and media. The spring releases showcased wines from all corners of the province, across numerous varietals and highlighting the different styles.
I focussed on the whites this time around along with some Rose and was quite impressed with the ones I tasted.
Here are a few faves:
SpierHead Winery 2010 Riesling
Dirty Laundry 2010 Hush
Neck of the Woods 2010 Sauvignon Blanc
Sperling Vineyards 2009 Pinot Gris
I also loved the 2010 Distraction Rose from The View Winery. I am looking forward to tasting these wines in the coming months, be on the lookout for these great BC Wines over the summer.
