Sandhill 2010 Small Lots Program Viognier - 88pts

Sandhill 2010 Small Lots Program Viognier (Kelowna) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and BCLDB stores
Cost: $25
Alcohol: 14%
Production: 658 cases
Date Tasted: August 4th, 2011

Tasting Notes: Leaner and crisper than its 2009 predecessor, losing a degree of richness in the overall balance in the process, yet still retaining the lush tropical fruit and fuzzy peach candy characters that make it one of the most consistent Viogniers in BC year-in, year-out. Good concentration on the fruity nose and mineral-filled, dry palate. The finish is very long with lingering orchard fruit and mineral flavours. Enjoy this vintage in its youth. Drink 2011-2012.
