Kikomun Creek Provincial Park – Ponderosa Campground - BC Camping

Kikomun Creek Provincial Park – Ponderosa Campground

Kikomun Creek Provincial Park - Ponderosa Campground - BC Camping

We had never been here but I was always hearing fabulous things about Koocanusa Lake from fellow Calgarians. From the amount of Alberta plates we saw in the campground and the fact that the park was started by the Devonian Foundation in Calgary I would say that Kikomun Creek is the only Alberta Provincial Park located in British Columbia ;)

Invivo Wines - Pinot Noir

Invivo Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Great summertime wine served slightly chilled with lighter meats such as chicken and pork, wouldn't stand up to beef. Paired well with root vegetables roasted with olive oil, parsley, chives and oregano.

Delicious on its own as well, having at night in watching the football game. Low tannin, medium to medium high acidity.

Brian's tasting notes:
-         Initially jammy with mild acidity with an earthy slightly oaked finish.

Leslie’s tasting notes:
-         Light and refreshing. Great for people who think they only like white wine as a baby step into reds.

But if you don't really care about that hoity toity stuff it is a fabulous and approachable wine that will impress dinner guests or as a great hostess gift and is enjoyed by various age groups and everyone from wine drinkers to wine snobs.
