Viognier is somewhat rare in the Okanagan but Roussane and Marsanne are even more so. Last years Viognier Roussanne blend from Osoyoos' Twisted Tree impressed me, so I was happy to see this Rhone-style Trio blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier.
Expect complex aromas of peaches, lime oil, exotic floral and honey, plenty of mineral and citrus with savoury, garrigue undertones. The palate is rich, almost unctuous in texture but the acidity is bright and snappy with loads of mineral, citrus and a hot, spicy finish.
