I’ve enjoyed this varietal from Joie in the past; in fact it was the first wine I ever tried from Joie. I’ve since enjoyed their Noble Blend and Rieslings, particularly the 2007 Riesling.
This is very clear, almost indistinguishable from water but with a slight silver tinge. Light nose of sage and grapefruit. Light bodied with a nice acidity and a strong lime quality, again with sage—quite different from past years, and quite unlike anything I’ve tasted before, but enjoyable. 10.5% alcohol. $27.10 at Kitsilano Wine Cellar.
