Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Narrative Viognier

Narrative Viognier 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Narrative collection includes wines and spirits made from grapes sourced from independent growers across the Okanagan. The wines are meant to be storytellers that illustrate the Okanagan terroir and growing conditions, chiefly dry, short, and intense. Viognier is new to the mix, but it gets the now well-known slow, concrete fermentation that is adding weight and texture throughout. The fruit is bright and tropical, with round, oily, orange notes, but all with a touch of lift and spice to keep it fresh. Indeed, the story is quite good.Tasted: 29 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.90 winery online, grocery, VQA and select private retailers Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
