2018 Lifecycle of a Hobo

'This Hobo wine springs from 37 year old müller-thurgau grapes growing peacefully in a single vineyard in East Kelowna near CedarCreek. Back in the day when the future seemed inevitable, this early-ripening, perfumed variety was planted in favour of riesling, a grape many thought wouldn’t ripen so far north. Fast forward to 2018. It is riesling-like after all, with its floral, orchard fruit nose and crisp fruit that provides a cage for all the peachy, apricot, green fruit filling the palate before finishing dry with a touch of bitterness. Müller-Thurgau is a white grape variety (Vitis vinifera) created by Hermann Müller from the Swiss Canton of Thurgau in 1882. It is a crossing of riesling with madeleine royale. 87 points' - Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi on Wine Sept 6 2019
