This lightly perfumed wine has aromas of honeycomb, peaches and cream and earl grey tea. On the palate it is fuller, with flavours of orange zest, apricot, poached pear, some tropical notes and lingers on the tongue.
Clone 642, planted in 2005. Cane pruned, shoot and fruit thinned to produce 4.4 short tons per acre.
Harvested on September 29th and September 14th respectively, a combination of Viognier fruit from our Allendale Vineyard and from the Similkameen Valley was almost entiredly whole cluster pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel. Several small 300L stainless steel fermentations were performed in this way. The remaining 6% of the fruit was crushed and partially skin fermented, before pressing off and completing fermentation. The finished wine was racked off and carefully blended, selecting only the most premium lots for this wine.
Food Pairing Notes
This popular white wine is perfect with sushi, roast pork with a fruit salsa, grilled halibut, or simply sitting on the patio watching the sunset.
