Bench 1775 Viognier 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe viognier aromas here are always on the sweet, candied tangerine side. The attack is similar, with a touch of soapy/green fruit to keep it lively on the palate, off-dry with litchi and orchard fruits with a splash of ginger. The winery suggests spicy Thai dishes, no doubt to offset the sugar and balance the palate. It would also be fine on a hot summer patio served well chilled.Tasted: 17 December 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.90 wine club members only Producer: Bench 1775 WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
