Jason Parkes Customs Crown + Thieves Roussanne Viognier 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe fruit is grown at the Stone's Throw Vineyard along the Lower Black Sage Bench. The ferment and the malolactic fermentation takes place in neutral puncheons where the wine stays on its lees for six months. Lemon, orange zest coats the palate, with a slightly bitter leesy undercurrent. The texture is rich but not overbearing, with a long, warm finish. This blend in the Okanagan continues to show a lot of promise as does winemaker Parkes. Try this with lobster or duck a l'orange.Tasted: 01 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 winery direct, private retail, restaurants Producer: The HatchCSPC: 278812UPC: 626990255833
