Tightrope Winery Viognier 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their estate Fleet Road vineyard, this viognier was fermented in a mix of French and acacia barrels, with 3 months' rest on lees. Lush apricot, perfumed musk, rosewater, and apricot rule this medium+ palate, with a crunchy Asian pear acidity to offset. Warming gingersnap spicing rests on the perfumed, grippy finish. Not much subtle here, with the acacia ramping up the spicing quite a bit, so if you're a big fan of the grape's showiness, seek this out.Tasted: 14 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
