      CedarCreek Estate Winery’s 2019 Estate Sauvignon Blanc

      Tech Sheet: Kelowna’s CedarCreek is part of Mission Hill Family Estate winery owner Anthony von Mandl’s portfolio. This Okanagan wine, made of 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc grapes, is fantastic value at $18.99.

      “Expect gooseberry and white grapefruit with subtle texture provided by a small amount of neutral oak and concrete fermentation,” official tasting notes say.

      Sip it: The taste of this bone-dry wine makes me think of the Prairies, where I grew up: tall, swaying grasses and huge rolls of hay. Now if we could only bottle that big, blue Alberta sky.
