Moon Curser Viognier

Moon Curser Viognier 2019

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is yet another really solid Okanagan viognier. Or maybe more precisely, Rhone white blend, because it includes 6 percent of both roussanne and marsanne. It combines honeysuckle, apricot, and cream in a style that is neither excessively aromatic nor blowsy. The one curiosity is the noticeable sweetness here (20 g/L residual sugar). It's a bit unusual for this style of blend, and it sticks out even with the relatively high acidity (at least for these grape varieties). However, the sugar does add some flesh to the medium-bodied frame and tames some of the bitterness on the finish. All in all, a delicious wine that is more than reasonably priced.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 21.99 select private retailers and restaurants Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
