Viognier Reserve

white
$30.00

A heady perfume of honeysuckle, mandarin orange and apricot with whiffs of fennel and white pepper. What Viognier is really all about though, is that textural magic. The wine is very weighty and unctuous on the palate but resolves back into a feather light, finely focused finish. Kinda like a sumo wrestler that can dance a beautiful ballet.

100% Queenston Road Vineyard fruit. Fermented in 7 neutral French oak barrel and a stainless steel tank (40%) using a variety of different yeast strains. Aged in tank and barrel for 10 months before tasting of individual components resulted in this unique blend. Bottled August 8th , 2017 and aged in bottle for 6 months before releasing.

Viognier will always be an exotic rarity in Niagara -- it needs a very warm site in October to ripen properly. Our tiny, perfect Vio block in sunny Niagara-on- the-Lake was originally planted to service our flagship Broken Press Syrah/Viognier red wine but we noticed very early on that the varietal wine was a stunner too. Year-in year-out those vines deliver the goods, and we can make another small batch of the ‘‘delicious impossibility’’ that is Viognier.
