Le Vieux Pin Ava

Le Vieux Pin Ava 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Ava blends roussanne, viognier, and a little marsanne, from the Black Sage Bench, Golden Mile Bench, and Sev's own vineyard, planted exclusively to Roussanne. Very floral, with the savoury honeyed nut of the roussanne leading out over the floral, apricot viognier. There's a lovely fine lees that beds this medium+ wine, giving an alluring creaminess along the palate. All blocks fermented separately in a mix of stainless, barrels, and concrete. Concentrated but still elegant and finessed.Tasted: 26 August 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct
