Description

Viognier will always be an exotic rarity in Niagara - it needs a very warm site in October to ripen properly. Our tiny, perfect Vio block at QRV was originally planted to service our flagship Broken Press Syrah/Viognier red wine, but we noticed very early on that the varietal wine was a stunner too.Year-in year-out those vines deliver the goods, and we can make another small batch of the ‘‘delicious impossibility’’ that is Viognier.

What a lovely, rich and expressive viognier, with honey, caramel and apricot on the nose and a generous, substantial mouthful with no heaviness. Can I get some salmon, with that?

Connoisseur Note(s):

It is this small production Queenston Road Vineyard labour of love that crawls beneath the radar. The '13 is outright juicy, unctuous, feathered in weight and warm-pitched to verdant greens.

Tasting Notes

Geographical Indication: St. David's Bench VQA, Ontario, Canada

Variety: Viognier

Vineyard: Queenston Road Vineyard

Alcohol: 13.5%

Cases Produced: 154

 

Appearance: Clear, light yellow core, translucent rim.

Nose: Medium intensity with aromas of peach, nectarine, sweet citrus, and tropical fruit.

Palate: This wine is medium-bodied with medium acid. Stone fruits greet you on the palate and are rounded out with minerality and subtle toast notes from the oak aging.

Quality: This is a good quality wine although a more robust Viognier than usual. The typical light, floral notes of Viognier are replaced with more complex oak and mineral characteristics in this expression.

 

More Food Pairings: Chicken salad with peach or mango, chicken or lamb tagine with apricots, Thai yellow curry, creamy cheeses, and roasted root vegetables on the sweeter side such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash.
