Viognier

 

2017 BC BRITISH COLUMBIA WHITE WINE

11.5% alc. 750ml

 

Viognier is a white wine grape most famously associated with France’s Rhone Valley. The grapes are also grown in British Columbia most notably in West Kelowna and Penticton.

VINTAGE REPORT:

2017 was a great year for grapes in the Okanagan. The growing season was without abnormalities and the grapes produced had exceptional flavor and balanced tannins with nice natural acidity, and beautiful complexity.

TASTING NOTES:

The Viognier grape creates very flavorful wines that are rich and aromatic, distinctive peach, hints of floral details such as honeysuckle and tangerine are present when bottled. The wine pairs very nicely with a variety of seafood and shellfish, roasted and grilled chicken, veal, pork and spicy flavors associated with Asian cuisine. Viognier is also delicious with select salads and of course with soft and hard cheeses.
