Wine – 2006 La Frenz Semillon, Naramata Bench

06142007.jpgMy good friend (and regular contributor here) Graham’s parents recently made a trip up to BC’s Okanagan and were great enough to bring me back a case of some of BC’s best wines. I’ll be reviewing everything I bought… so first up is the 2006 La Frenz Semillon.

This isn’t a grape many folks think of when they’re out buying a bottle, but you know what? When the weather gets warm, there are some bloody tasty ones out there… and it goes really well with lighter foods such as sushi and salads. I’ve been a fan of this and the Semillon from Township 7 for a few years now. They both make great Summer sippers.

I’ll spell this wine out for ya’. It’s light in colour, has a full-on citrus and kiwi nose and is a bloody tasty mouthful of zingy citrus and gooseberry fruit. Yummy stuff as the days get warmer. I’d completely recommend picking up a bottle if you can find it.

$18 here in BC.
