Awards & Ratings

Critic’s Rating:

89 pts

Good intense Viognier aromatics on the nose with lots of floral jasmine notes, ripe white peach and tropical guava, apricot and pineapple. The palate is rich and lush textured, nice and full in body with plenty of tropical fruit, peach, flowers and ginger spice and balancing acidity along with a pleasant slight phenolic grip. There is good flavour intensity and concentration and a long finish. (Tasted Dec 2014)

  • "Attractive fragrant scents of sage honey, apricot and flowers pave the way for a fruity mouthful of aromatic wine. Flavours start with herbs and peach pit and end on a lush off-dry note with strong Okanagan presence." Tasted June 2014 (NWAC) 88 Points

    Tasting Notes

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

    Name
    : 2013 Viognier
    Winery: C.C. Jentsch Cellars
    Geographical Indication: Okanagan Valley, BC
    Variety: Viognier
    Vineyard: Golden Mile Bench
    Alcohol: 13.5%
    Cases Produced: 723

    Appearance: Clear, pale yellow in colour.

    Nose
    : White peach, orchard blossom, guava, and apricot.

    Palate: Full-bodied, rich lemon cream, pineapple, peach, and a touch of almond and ginger spice. Juicy, round, and well-balanced acidity.

    Quality: Good quality. This fresh and full-bodied wine arouses the senses and awakens the palate. The racy freshness keeps it mouth watering. Best if consumed within the next 3 years.

    Food pairings: Creamy and mild, nutty, or salty-sharp cheeses, crisp roast chicken and herbs, grilled white fish, pork, and creamy pastas.

    Winemakers Notes
    Our challenge for this harvest was to sort meticulously to deal with damaged fruit. With this accomplished, we whole-cluster pressed bunches to tank, where they cold-settled and clarified. After racking off sediments, the wine was inoculated and fermentation took place 100% in stainless steel to preserve the fresh fruit characteristics. This wine saw no malolactic fermentation, which also maintained the crisp nature of the wine. Post-fermentation the wine aged sur lie, which built mouthfeel and lends to the ‘lemon cream’ notes on the palate.
