Road 13 Vineyards and Winery 2008 Viognier Roussanne Marsanne - 89pts
Availablity: Direct from winery. VQA stores like Kensington Square.
Date Tasted: April 22nd, 2010
Tasting Notes: Grown in the winery's holdings on Black Sage Bench, this blend of Viognier, Rousanne and Marsanne (46%, 44% and 10% respectively) captures the essence of a warm, tropical island complete with fresh pineapple and sweet mellon aromas.
The aromas of the delicate nose continue through to the creamy palate with added flavours of grapefruit, slate and a touch of clove spice on the long finish. Strong citrus acidity has the affect of a cool breeze refreshing your face on a hot beach - a nice balance.
