Le Vieux Pin Ava 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaUnreleased, and just bottled in June 2020, this was an early peek at the next Ava, named after Sev's daughter. This vintage was 51% viognier, 37% rousanne, 12% marsanne, in a super floral blend, with viognier's exuberance at the core. Anise, apricot, fleshy peach and a fine white floral perfume stream throughout to the finish. A showier style, very well handled. Makes a very interesting partner to the 2018 Ava, which was roussanne driven. Looking forward to retesting in a couple of months.Tasted: 26 August 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct
