Tightrope Winery Viognier 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2021 Viognier is entirely from Fleet Road Vineyard on Tightrope's Naramata Bench estate. This was whole cluster pressed and fermented in a mix of French and Acacia barrels, where it remained on lees for an additional 3 months. The wood spice works very well up against the grape's inherent lushness, adding to the honeysuckle, jasmine, tangerine blossom and lime pith on the bright, creamy palate, all wrapped up with a welcome 13.5%. Quite smart.Tasted: 09 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
