Van Westen Vineyards Viscous 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaYear two of Viscous and it looks a lot like last year’s inaugural label, rich in sugar and acidity that more or less cancel each other out, although strangely it remains fresh and vibrant and anything but sticky and viscous. Sugared lemon drops and baked apples carry a mineral undercurrent that keeps it all inline. You can cool this down, drink it solo for its fresh sugary fruit, or serve it with a favourite Thai or Indian curry. Well done again.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
