Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Viognier is light gold in colour and has an intensely fruity nose made up of apricots, nectarines, and mandarin orange in addition to notes of honey and vanilla. These aromas carry onto the fat, unctuous palate where they are amplified into an explosive, hedonistic experience that is only possible with Viognier. The overall impression is of a wine that is full, rich and decadent.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing season was long, dry and warm, much like the previous 3 vintages. The grapes for this wine were sourced from The Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley. During harvest the grapes were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and sugar content, and they were picked at the optimum point of flavour for the intended style, which is rich and round, and intensely flavoured.
Production Notes
100% Viognier
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for the 2016 Viognier were picked on September 20th, 2016. They were carefully hand-sorted and gently whole-bunch pressed, before 24 hours of cold settling. Fermentation took place in a French Oak barrels (20% new) and they remained in those barrels with monthly lees stirring to build richness and texture in the wine. The wine was gently pulled out of barrels in April where it was clarified and stabilized prior to bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
It will pair perfectly with various shellfish dishes and spicy curries. In addition, we recommend experimenting with nuts such as cashews and various softer mild cheeses. Of course, Viognier also pairs well with quiet moments in a comfortable chair and your plans for world domination.
