Amulet White 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAmulet is a wine project featuring Okanagan consulting winemaker Dwight Sick and Roche Winery owners Penelope and Dylan Roche on the Naramata Bench. It is inspired by the significant grapes and wines of the Rhône Valley. Production is small, and the first vintage was in 2018. The wines continue to grow and evolve each year. The latest Amulet White is a 90/10 mix of viognier/marsanne grown on the Naramata Bench and the Penticton West Bench. The style is intense but fresh with peaches, apricots with a dusting of lees to keep the sweetness in check and add complexity. It is a lush perfumed style of viognier with enough bitter notes to balance the finish. This will stand up to some substantial dishes like spicy Thai dishes. Good value here.Tasted: 13 August 2022Tasted by: Prices:
