Mission Hill Reserve Limited Edition Viognier 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnother south Okanagan viognier, this one from a warm, west Osoyoos vineyard, yet like many 2016's it shines. Bright, stylish and decidedly less fat than the 2015, this viognier is all verve, citrus and tangerines. This reserve tier springs from the best fifteen percent of fruit that comes into the winery and chief winemaker Darryl Brooker says those locations making the grade are consistant from year to year. The wine is fermented in a mix of concrete eggs, oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, and as mentioned it's fresh and svelte. Juicy citrus, green apple, tangerines flecked with ripe oranges attack the palate and persist to the creamy, dry, finish. Try this with a variety of south Asian cuisine.Tasted: 06 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.99 winery direct Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
