Burrowing Owl Viognier 2020

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Osoyoos estate vineyard, this viognier was whole bunch pressed, with 75% fermenting in oak barrels (15% new) and the remainder in stainless, both with b√Ętonnage over 9 months. The toasty wood is an ever-present backdrop to ripe apricot, lush peach, honeysuckle, gingersnap spicing that stretches long across the fuller palate. Acid is in check to buoy this wine, one that smartly holds itself in check, even for a full-bodied Southern Okanagan viognier.Tasted: 13 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
