Le Vieux Pin Ava 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNamed for Sev's daughter, this is a blend of viognier (53 percent), roussanne and marsanne. The 2017 gave much more concentration to the juice due to the small yields of the vintage. This wine spent time in wood, stainless and concrete. Potent and energetic in youth, with viognier's assertive apricot / orange punch popping through a lightly creamy / creamsicle palate. The lingers with fine texture and tangerine pith.Tasted: 20 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct (BC), Empson (AB), Lifford (ON), Belanger (QC)
