Karl from My Wine Pal says this: 40 Knots White Seas 2016 ($19.90) – “Designed as an all-encompassing white wine to showcase the delicate, refreshing, yet complex wine style only found on Vancouver Island. Clean fruit, hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Slow and cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain aromatics.” Made from Pinot Gris grapes. The wine is medium pear skin in colour. Medium plus youthful aroma with floral, lychee, pears and sweet spice aromas. If you decant this wine, the floral and lychee nose becomes more apple and flinty. The wine is off dry, but has bright acidity that leaves a light acidic prickle on your tongue. The wine has a round waxiness to it; a nice mouth feel. Flavours of pears, pear skin, lychee, and floral with a hint of pine needles. It has a long lingering finish with flavours of pears, apples and floral. The flavours are a better enjoyed as soon as you open the bottle. With decanting the aromas and flavours are not as intense, but still nice. Rating: – A wine with a nice round mouth feel and bright acidity to highlight its flavours of apples, pears , floral and lychee. 4.5 stars
