Le Vieux Pin 2012 Ava (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Production: 680 cases
Date Tasted: March 9th, 2014
Tasting Notes: The enchanting, Rhone-inspired "Ava" combines 61% Viognier, 21% Roussanne and 18% Marsanne into a deliciously rich and creamy textured wine that blends tropical and melon fruit with mineral and exotic nut aromas and flavours to create a layered, sensual wine that will stand on its own or pair with Poulet de Bresse-esque dishes. Ripe citrus fruit keeps the full-bodied palate tasting fresh and balanced through to the long, long finish where hints vanilla bean and cardamom spice linger. Drink 2012-2015.
