2015 Desert Hills Viognier
BC VQA Okanagan Valley
Sept 25th 2015
This Viognier is luscious with a mild orange blossom nose and beautifully aromatic flavours of peach and honeydew, finished with a crisp minerality.
Our Viognier is grown on our Sira’s Vineyard on the banks of Lake Osoyoos. Hot days and cool nights allow for full development of the aromatics.
650 Cases Produced
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by a whole berry gravity “crush,” whereby free run juice had minimal skin contact. Fermentation temperature were maintained at 15 degrees to optimize flavours. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was racked into stainless where it cold stabilized for two weeks, filtered, then bottled.
Food Pairing Notes
An ideal partner to spicy, Southeast Asian and Japanese foods. Wonderful as a cocktail wine.
