Penner-Ash Viognier 2019

Oregon, United StatesIt is year 19 for the Viognier label, and it arrives with a great flavour profile. It is 92 percent fermented in Stainless steel for freshness, with an additional 8 percent fermenting in a concrete egg to add some texture and mouthfeel to the finished wine. The growing season started cool before moving to a warmer than average summer followed by a cool finish — perhaps best for tuning all of the viognier’s panoply of flavours to a perfect pitch. Look for an exotic orange blossom and jasmine nose that spills across the palate that adds some green apple freshness and subtle notes of bitter lime for complexing — a delicious and stylish viognier that walks the tightrope of richness and leanness to a tee.Tasted: 06 March 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 select private retailers AB 32.99 select private retailers SK 41.99 special order MB 41.99 special order Producer: Penner-Ash Wine CellarsDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
