As we step into a new year filled with promises and possibilities, we are thrilled to release a gem, the alluring 2022 Benchmark Series Viognier. This white wine varietal is set to captivate your senses with its aromatic charm and bright fruit flavours, making it a must-try for wine enthusiasts seeking a delightful start to the year.
Made with 100% Viognier, this wine is a blend of fruit from long time growers, Raju Vineyard in Osoyoos and Fool’s Gold Vineyard in Oliver. These warm sites ensures optimal ripeness for this Rhone variety, intensifying both the bouquet and the fruit-forward palate. The Viognier was fermented in stainless steel tank and 4 neutral French oak barrels to add texture to the palate. This vintage expresses vibrant aromas of pink grapefruit, lime, and honeysuckle. The palate is a lovely interplay of fresh passion fruit and citrus flavours, finishing with a gracefully rounded mouthfeel. Under 500 cases crafted! Stock up your cellar — add four or more bottles to your cart (of any of our wines) and shipping is only $10 across most of Canada!
