Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series La Côte Vineyard Viognier 2019

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaClos du Soleil owns and runs an organically-farmed estate named La Côte Vineyard. The upper bench Keremeos fruit is the subject of this wine. Wisley fermented in older French puncheons, this aged on its lees for five months. I love the slimmed-down style, and the minerality and brightness of the Similkameen are shining through in the form of ripe orchard fruits and a full, juicy, spicy finish with barely a whisper of sugar. A definite winner if you like the leaner viognier style.Tasted: 29 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.90 winery online/direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
