Jason Parkes Customs Gobsmacked Cyclops Love 2015
There’s little doubt we can mirror Alsace in BC. Sometimes we do it so well we are gobsmacked by the results. Enter winemaker Jason Parkes. Gobsmacked ‘Cyclops Love’ is an Alsace-ish blend of 34 percent pinot auxerrois, 28 percent muscat, 21 percent schönburger and 17 percent riesling. I’m thinking it’s a bit Edelzwicker in style, as in a dry light wine that is a blend of several white grape varieties from the Alsace region. Bright and fresh, it’s a little less floral and little more piney than its German kin, with dried herbs and orange peel notes on the finish. The colourful ‘kid’ label was drawn by Jason’s 7-year-old daughter.
