Van Westen Vineyards 2008 Viognier - 90pts

Van Westen Vineyards 2008 Viognier (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery. Private wine shops.
Cost: $25-29
Production: 120 cases
Date Tasted: April 12th, 2010

Tasting Notes: Good crispness of citrus acidity with a complex nose of ripe apricots, peach candies, cooking spice and floral notes. A full-ish, concentrated palate of tropical fruits, rich texture and a lengthy finish. Very well balanced.

This is one of the best Viognier in the Provence currently on offer. This varietal is growing in popularity with consumers and growers alike and anyone jumping on the bandwagon should certainly give Van Westen's a try.
