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

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis viognier comes from their organically-farmed estate La Côte vineyard, on the upper bench of Keremeos. After a whole cluster press, this was fermented in older French puncheons, and aged on lees for 5 months. Viognier's inherent lushness and fatness is smartly tamed here, with plump orchard fruits, juicy mandarin, nectarine, star anise, and ample spice, all in a tidy 3.8 g/L. Tropical, yet restrained, this is a drinkable 14+ degrees wine.Tasted: 02 July 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.90 winery online/direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
