This wine begins with rich aromas of banana and ripe apricot. On the palate, the mouth-filling flavours are luscious, with notes of apricot and peach and a touch of hazelnut on the finish. This is a dry Viognier with personality!

Vineyard: Raisin D’Etre Vineyards

Cases Produced: 445

 

Appearance: Clear, pale yellow, slight salmon or pink hue.

Nose: Orange blossom, beeswax, muddled lemon and a hint of rosemary.

Palate: Rich viscosity and good weight. Plenty of baked stone-fruit like peaches, nectarines and apricots. Honeyed finish with a touch of heat on the very long finish.

Quality: A well-built Viognier that exudes all of the character expected from the variety, from pretty aromatics to rich concentration and baskets upon baskets of fruit.

Wine Writer’s Comment:

It may be cliché to say it, but let’s go for it: this wine is the epitome of the Okanagan in a glass. Just think of those ripening orchards of peaches and apricots and apples and more, totally sun-drenched and baking in the sun. This is a sturdy white wine; great for hot days where a big red might be in order, but a white seems much more suitable. In fact, a good decanting would likely do it well, allowing all of those flavours to bloom. Feel free to go big with meats on the barbecue, and sauce them up as much as you’d like. This wine can definitely handle it.    - Kurtis Kolt, The Georgia Straight
