Terravista Figaro 2017

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIn 2017, Figaro turned back time to 2010 when they had first added marsanne to what had become a viognier/roussanne Figaro blend. The ratio in ‘17 is 53 percent roussanne, 34 percent viognier and 13 percent marsanne. The viognier and marsanne comes out of the uber stony, Similkameen Valley; the roussanne is from the warm Oliver region. The roussanne and marsanne are puncheon fermented before ageing up to 10 months sur lie. The palate is electric with peachy, nectarine fruits with a dusting of dessert sagebrush. As rich as it is, there is an undercurrent of acidity that takes on the weight and nutty notes in the finish. It’s so interesting the bottle seems to empty out in no time at all.
