Van Westen Vineyards Viognier 2006

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnother good effort from Van Westen and similar to the 05 with its bright floral, orange and honey scented nose and flavours. The entry is fresh and clean with fine minerality. The structure is slightly leaner than last year making it a wine you can sip solo before dinner or with appetizers. Clearly this site is working we need only wait now for the vines to get a bit older and produce a little less fruit with more intensity to match the price.Tasted: 11 December 2007Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
