Blasted Church 2009 Hatfield’s Fuse

I’ve enjoyed the last couple of vintages of this blend, which this year (PDF) is 53.5% Gewürztraminer, 17.1% Optima, 14.2% Pinot Blanc, 8.2% Chardonnany, 4.0% Ehrenfelser, 1.5% Pinot Gris, 1.0% Riesling, and 0.5% Sauvignon Blanc.

Pale-ish silver appearance with, pineapple, apple, and floral qualities on the nose. Medium body with nice acidity balancing complex tropical and Okanagan fruit and, as the winemaker notes, an appealing spicy finish, ever so slightly off dry. 13.3% alcohol; under $20 from BC Liquor. This has become a nice consistent product; I recommend it for summer drinking. I’m pairing it with the Seitan Medallions in Mixed-Mushrooom Gravy from Vegan Soul Kitchen. See Blasted Church Vineyards.
