Our blend of two white grape varieties, Albariño and Verdejo. The only wine of these grapes produced in Canada! Grown at our home vineyard on the Naramata Bench at our Lone Hand Ranch vineyard. Tough granitic soils of glacial origin characterize the vineyard.
Our 8th vintage Fandango is composed of Albariño (63%) and Verdejo (37%), both estate grown at our Lone Hand Ranch vineyard.
In it's youth consistently refreshing and thirst quenching with vibrant aromas of succulent white peaches, ripe honeydew with hints of red grapefruit and even fennel. The boucle-like mouthfeel tingles with a juicy stony edge, complimenting the nervy lemony energy on the finish.
Forever almost "all" foods friendly, this year aspiring to be paired with a Galician seafood empanada.

Medium intensity on the subtle but complex nose with pear, apple peel, lemon and grapefruit zest. The palate is dry with racy acidity and flavours of lemon, lemon zest grapefruit, green apple and nectarine with some spicy notes on the long finish.

This wine has flavours and aromas of white peach and melon mingled with hints of grapefruit. An extra year in the bottle has rounded the texture without taking away from the refreshing and juicy fruit.
