Frind Estate Handcrafted Viognier Dessert Wine Limited Release 2022

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis viognier was picked at the optimal ripeness and artificially frozen before it was pressed, giving it the icewine treatment without risking waiting for the weather to show up. Look for a fat, prosperous, honey, floral affair with light peach undertones and a slightly bitter walnut shell finish. It lacks some edgy acid that can lighten the palate, but those who prefer the fat viognier style will not be disappointed. Crème brûlée would be the match, or chocolate cake with toffee.Tasted: 20 December 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
