Fizziotherapy 2011 – Therapy Vineyards, 11.0% ABV, 750 ml., (Naramata, BC, Canada) (*local BC wine*)
on the back label:
“Make sure to stretch your jaw muscles with this deliciously off-dry and frothy wine. Intense aromas of tangerines, peaches and apples, match with the light zingy acid of this wine.
A blend of Riesling, Orange-Muscat and Viognier, this fun fusion is the perfect aperitif or enjoyed with fresh Okanagan fruits and summer sun. Produced slightly off-dry, frizzante style.”

Visual: (cellared for 5 years). Bottle cap top. Pours clear medium golden yellow with quickly dissipating small bubbles, a couple singular slow streams.
Nose: apple, mild peachy, a touch of minerals. (lvl-2)-pungency
Attack: crisp off-dry sour bite, slight fizzy
Mid-palate: (lvl-2-sweetness), fruity apple, hints of peach, medium tangy firm acidity,
Finish: residual tart sticky gums,
Summary: This off-dry wine does a good job of opening up the palate – a nice aperitif, as advertised. Solid apple-white grape flavour, certainly better than their rosé rendition [C]. Not quite a Champagne, but decent.
