The wine begins with lush aromas of nectarine, apricot and pineapple. Everything is echoed on the palate, including the sensually lush texture. The rich finish is persistant.

Connoisseur Note(s):

Pale colour. Smells confected, like vinyl. Sweet impression on the palate. Basic stuff. Tasted Blind at the NWACs, June 2015. 86 Points

- John Szabo, MS, WineAlign

Tangerine pith and orange sherbet lead this leaner viognier. Bitter seville orange and fine peach fuzz spicing join the palate before finishing with a sour note. Feels like the winery is finding its way with this tricky grape - looking forward to tasting future vintages. 88 Points

- Treve Ring, WineAlign

Tasting Notes

This was a featured wine from January's Premium Wine Club.


Name: 2014 Small Lot Series Viognier

Winery: C.C. Jentsch Cellars

Geographical Indication: Okanagan Valley, BC

Variety: Viognier

Vineyard: Predominantly Golden Mile Bench vineyard

Alcohol: 14%

Cases Produced: 129


Appearance: Clear, pale yellow colour.


Nose: Fresh, lush aromas of nectarine, apricot and pineapple.


Palate: Dry, light body, medium alcohol, medium intense flavours of nectarine, apricot, tangerine pith, and fine peach fuzz spicing.


Quality: Very good quality. Bursting with nectarines, melon and lemon cream, this fresh and full-bodied wine arouses the senses and awakens the palate. Best if consumed within the next three years.


Food pairings: Any dish with ripe peaches, creamy and mild, nutty, or salty-sharp cheeses, crisp roast chicken and herbs, grilled white fish, pork, and creamy pastas.


Winemakers Notes:
With such a dry ripening period, the fruit was free from blemish, and I was able to cold soak half of the fruit overnight, revealing extra flavours, and increasing the aromatic intensity and mouth feel of this classic wine. The fermentation took place entirely in stainless steel, and the wine aged sur lie to build the creaminess of the mouth feel.
