This V Series white blend will make a great gift. To purchase please contact the winery directly. Read here how I paired this wine with a favourite dish #ThisWineThatDish
2021 V Series
Sémillon 75% / Riesling 25%
Our ‘V Series’ is the beginning of something special. This is the first white blend in this series. This wine is a unique blend of Sémillon and Riesling grapes that shows pale but brilliant straw yellow in the glass. On the nose, spring flowers and fresh, vibrant fruits shine through like white peach and ripe apple. This wine has full-bodied texture a crisp acidity all while being refreshing. ‘V Series’ has a lot to give – this is the perfect summer sipper.
The ‘V Series’ of wine is a passion project, brilliantly executed by our Master Winemaker Howard Soon. This curated blend of white grapes were hand-picked and whole cluster-pressed. The goal was to capture the essence of the grapes with very little skin contact. This is the first wine in the series, but won’t be the last.
Overall, the 2021 growing season was mostly normal. At the end of June, we experienced a heat dome and the hot spots moved slowly throughout the valley, making us water heavily to keep the vines cool.
I loved this wine! It is the perfect pairing for a rich seafood dish. The wine is crisp and refreshing, dry with excellent acidity. Hints of minerality and some herbeaceous notes. Easy drinking on its own or paired with any seafood, cheeses or lighter fare.
Although the V series white wine is an ideal summer wine it is equally delicious and versatile even on the coolest of nights. Think cozy evenings in front of the fireplace, add a bowl of popcorn, your favourite flick, or just by itself while you enjoy a good book.
This wine has been served exclusively in the Vanessa Tasting room. Please contact the winery directly for price and availability.
