  • La Frenz Wits End Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018


    The La Frenz SB is very light yellow colour with lime, lemon peel and fresh mown grass on the nose... very Sauvignon Blanc and variety sound. It tastes much like an Entre-deux-Mers in the same price range, with a bit more purity on the palate. Palate cleansing and pleasant on the finish. Well done. 88. Read More

  • La Frenz Naramata Bench Chardonnay Reserve 2014


    The 2014 edition of the La Frenz Reserve (Naramata Bench) Chardonnay is a lovely expression of the grape in a British Columbia setting - the very gentle mineral-based apple and pear flavours emerge from the chewy oak which might be a teeny bit heavy. Still, the wine hits the palate much like a Chilean alternative - but with a more delicacy and ... Read More

  • La Frenz Naramata Bench Chardonnay Reserve 2012


    The talented Jeff Martin makes this delicious Chard in a (rather) Cali style - with prominent oak (but not too, too prominent), a sweet entry with ample vanilla, butterscotch, apple and tropical fruit such as mango. This is a fine wine for the price, the only distraction being the gentle northern Chardonnay being a teeny bit overpowered by the ... Read More

  • La Frenz Ensemble 2011


    Had this at their tasting room. The Ensemble is La Frenz's take on a Graves/Bordeaux style blended white. Well balanced with a kind of rich mouthfeel with plenty of lemongrass and citrus notes. I really like how there is just a touch of oak - more supportive than anything else; way in the background. (I found out that it gets barrel aged for a y... Read More

  • La Frenz Naramata Bench Vivant 2011


    A bright, light bodied, balanced wine. Notes of apple, meyer lemon, pear, nectarine. More fresh fruit than plush soft tropical flavours here. Lots of well balanced, soft, mouth watering acidity. Medium bodied. Medium finish. Apparently this does get some oak treatment/aging on the lees, but I don't get any oaky notes from drinking this one. This... Read More

  • La Frenz Naramata Bench Viognier Probyn-Eastman Vineyard 2012


    With a wonderfully nuanced nose dominated by mandarin orange, kiwi, and lychee nut, this 2012 Viognier has distinctly correct fruit; on the palate, the juice is sweet but not cloying with just the right acid balance. Finish is medium with a touch of citrus rind. Very juicy and more tropical in flavour than Condrieu. Best Viognier so far from ... Read More

  • La Frenz Naramata Bench Chardonnay Sonoran Vineyard 2012


    Jeff Martin, the Australian-born winemaker at La Frenz has produced a wonderful, almost California-like Chardonnay for a good price; there is an enticing pear-apple nose with a hint of vanilla and the entry is full, plump, slightly fat and tinged with oak (more vanilla) and apple cider. Balanced, rich, full-bodied and good as an aperitif (and o... Read More

  • La Frenz Naramata Bench Riesling Andrew Vineyard 2012


    Comparing German and Canadian Rieslings may have pitfalls, but the youthful richness of high-end British Columbia examples are charting an interesting course for the variety. The nose is slightly minty with pear, delicious apple and lime notes; on the palate, there is more lime, sweet delicious apple and muted citrus acidity. Fair balance, but ... Read More

  • La Frenz Chardonnay Naramata Bench Reserve 2009


    This luscious wine, thankfully imported to Vancouver BC by Marquis Wines, was suggested by David Lancelot (although they were out of stock at the time). His suggestion paid big dividends in recent weeks: this wine is simply stunning with a perfect oak integration for the senses on both nose and palate coupled with that ineluctable spiciness res...
