John Schreiner on wine - 'Moon Curser's intriguing portfolio', 13 wines rated 90+ points

"Moon Curser Vineyards takes pride in growing grape varietals not common elsewhere in British Columbia. “We believe that the main reason they thrive in our Osoyoos vineyards is their location in what is the southernmost, hottest and sunniest place in all of the Okanagan,” the winery has written. As a consequence, Moon Curser’s wine portfolio is one of the most interesting and exciting in British Columbia. It includes Italian varietals Arneis and Dolcetto; Rhone varietals Roussanne, Marsanne and Syrah; a Portuguese grape, Touriga Nacional; a Spanish red, Tempranillo; and two reds grown primarily in South America, Tannat and Carménère. The winery grows neither Chardonnay nor Pinot Gris. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes in its vineyards usually are components in blends."
