Laughing Stock Vineyards Viognier +10/10 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFormer winemaker Nikki Callaway has taken the 2018 viognier in a fresher direction than previous vintages. Fermented in 40 percent concrete eggs, 32 percent neutral French oak, and 28 percent stainless, this has a bright, well defined nose of Okanagan peach and white flowers. The palate is precise and well balanced, with fresh, integrated acidity, a reasonable 13.9% alcohol, and a slightly pithy finish. Give this some time to open up in the glass. Okanagan viognier is evolving, and the new mantra is restraint and elegance.Tasted: 02 September 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.99 winery direct Producer: Laughing Stock VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
