Harper’s Trail Field White Blend 2011

Harper’s Trail Field White Blend 2011
Okanagan, $17

I have a soft spot for Kamloops. I love its golf courses, its summer heat. The way it lets its southern neighbours trumpet their achievements, while quietly going about its business. Which, come to think about, is the perfect quality for a winemaker. Enter Harper’s Trail. The new winery has just released three new wines, none of them over $20 (also very Kamloops). The $17 Field Blend White is a mix of Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc—four pals who don’t normally hang together. It’s like a very light Conundrum—so light that I enjoyed it more when it was quite cold, which given that it’s only 10.5%, makes it a good wine for those late-summer cookouts. Harperstrail.com
