The judging for Vancouver magazine's 11th Annual Wine Awards is in full stride: 17 judges are evaluating more than 750 wines at this very moment, looking for 100-plus bottles you'll want to start tasting now (or saving for the perfect moment). This charming, aromatic Fraser Valley white embodies what our judges try to find each year: well-made and interesting gems from all over the world that broaden one's vinous horizons while delivering terrific value. Look for the results from our 2015 competition at Vanmag.com on December 1st.

Siegerrebe is a compelling German grape cross of savagnin and madeleine angevine that is valued for its early budding and ripening. It smells a bit like muscat and gewürztraminer, with heady scents of orange blossom and exotic citrus. The palate of this Chaberton wine, grown in Langley, is confidently fruity, with luscious apple, peach, and honey flavours, all nicely sharpened by crisp acidity. An off-dry B.C. favourite, it charmed our judges at last year's Wine Awards. Give it a good chill and enjoy with Thai coconut curry.

*Available at private wine stores
