Tasting Notes: Appreciating the gorgeous nose of this Viognier from Naramata Bench producer La Frenz Winery needs to be stressed as all too often the bouquets of crisp white wines are overlooked. Fresh pineapple and green apple fruit aromas float serenely in the glass showcasing both their tart and sweet characters. Moving to the palate may shock you at first with bright, high-plus acidity, but the initial impression of a sharp balance is eased with rich tropical flavours and textures. Enjoy this wine on its own or with a rich seafood dish. Drink 2011-2013.
