Stag’s Hollow Con-Fusion 2009 (Canada)

Con-Fusion 2009 – Stag’s Hollow, 13.2% ABV, (Okanagan, BC, Canada)

On the back label:

“A heady nose of lycee [sic], melons and the perfume of Spring blossoms, leads to a delightful palate of ripe melons, grapefruit, Asian pears and Turkish Delight candy. Best enjoyed well chilled on the patio with sunshine and good friends. Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Muscat.”

My notes:

  • My Rating: C+
  • Why it’s okay: fruity sweet but cloying
  • Where I got it: VQA Kensington
  • How much: ~$20 , 750ml, 2011
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to wine aficionados: nah

Tasting notes: pours clear light golden yellow. Alcohol and bright green melon on the nose. Drinks very fruity up front, notes of lychee, stone fruit, melon, all the while mixed with the alcoholic backdrop. Medium-cloying sugars in the mid and finishes slightly salty. Can’t say it’s super-refreshing but at least it is quite drinkable.
