Cassini Cellars 2009 French Couture Viognier - 87pts

Cassini Cellars 2009 French Couture Viognier (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and select VQA stores
Cost: $19
Alcohol: 13.2%
Production: 376 cases
Date Tasted: January 23rd, 2011

Tasting Notes: Subtle aromas of tropical fruit, grapefruit, star fruit, Asian pear, lees and savoury spice on the nose precede a similar palate with a greater presence of citrus fruit characters. This Viognier is crisp without being tart, sweet without much residual sugar and memorable without a lingering finish. Well balanced and well priced with nice mineral notes adding a bit of complexity to the otherwise straight forward presentation. Drink 2011-2013.
