2010 Joie Pure Grape Muscat
Founded by two former sommeliers, Joie Farm is one of the most exciting producers in British Columbia’s Okanagan valley. Their Pure Grape Muscat is a great example of their fresh, clean and always controlled style of wines. Clocking in at barely over 11% alcohol, this wine made from Moscato Giallo strikes a great balance between crisp freshness and aromatic amplitude, with a dangerously high drinkability combined with all the floral and peachy aromatics of muscat. A pale, crystalline white that can pair well with oysters, sushi or some spicy Asian foods. Highly recommended.
