Van Westen Vineyards Viognier 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis shows quite an attractive nose, combining fragrant honeysuckle and jasmine with expressive apricot and lemon that's balanced by a touch of cream and spice. There's a verve and liveliness to the palate, rare for viognier, which is reflective of North Naramata, with fruit sourced from Orlando and Granite Ridge vineyards. The result is a wine that is immensely moreish, but still with excellent varietal character and complexity. Add this to the long list of outstanding BC viogniers.Tasted: 07 November 2023Tasted by: Prices:
