2021 Desert Hills Viognier
Wild jasmine and white flowers perfume the nose with hints of fresh chamomile and orange blossom. A rich and full-bodied palate gives way to notes of meyer lemon curd, honey dew, and vanilla. Long finish, with enough acidity to cut any sweetness.
Our 2021 Viognier is sourced from our Osoyoos Vineyard. The fruit was hand harvested and carefully sorted before destemming. 82% was fermented in stainless steel the remaining 18% was barrel fermented in 2-4 year old French oak . Temperature controlled fermentation proceeded low and slow using a combination of indigenous and cultivated yeast. The wine then spent 5 months to mature. Malolactic fermentation was halted to preserve acidity. Enjoy now!
