VIOGNIER 2021 - Released May 19, 2022!
Layered and age-worthy, this vintage of Viognier has fresh cut pineapple on the nose, crisp at first and then dipped in honey. Characteristic stonefruit lines a wonderful mid palate density creating a long-textured finish.
Thinking roasted veg garnished with Okanagan Nectarine or Lamb Tagine with honey and almonds.
Viognier fruit in 2021 came from the Naramata Bench and Similkameen. Raisin D'Etre was hand picked on Sept 26th. Gently whole cluster pressed then cool fermented over 3 weeks in a stainless tank. Blind Creek (Keremeos) was picked October 5th. Gently whole cluster pressed and cool fermented in stainless tank over a 2-week period. Once both wines were finished fermentation, they were blended together.
