FLAVOUR PROFILE
Take the time to stop and smell the 'Viognier'; a beautiful aromatic wine showing notes of orange blossom, lilac, mandarin orange and peach.
This dry, medium-bodied wine has fresh, fruity flavours of peach, melon and red apple, lightly accented by floral notes.
Lovely notes of musk melon, white peach, white currant and floral linger on the finish.
Serve chilled at 11 to 13ºC and enjoy with lightly spiced pan-fried fish fillets; roast chicken; baked ham; lightly spiced stir-fries over Jasmine rice; spiced fish cakes; coconut shrimp skewers; mild curry dishes; Tandoori turkey rolls.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The spring began with a blast of heat and a quick start to the season. Summer and fall cooled slightly allowing a slow, long ripening season, ideal for red varietals, and for expressive aromatic whites. The valley saw slightly wetter than normal conditions; however, the vineyards remained healthy. The southern Okanagan Valley experienced 1635 GDD (Growing Degree Days), representing higher than average heat units.

WINEMAKER NOTES
The soil at Osprey Ridge Vineyard has a higher pebble and gravel content than the pure sand of our vineyards to the south. This seems to allow Viognier to hang on the vine longer, for more intense floral perfumed characteristics and more fruit intensity.
