We’re changing it up for this Viognier post and talking about a Canadian wine that is blended with Viognier, as so many wines are. Our Viognier feature post today is from Henry of Pelham, and it is their 2010 Family Tree White. This wine is a fantastic blend of Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Viognier, Chardonnay Musqué. The wine makers describe the Henry of Pelham, 2010 Family Tree White by saying:
Family Tree celebrates the idea of family. These wines are made from fruit sourced off of our own vineyards but also those of our friends, neighbours and distant cousins across the Niagara Peninsula.
On colour, this wine possesses a lovely golden hue. On the nose, scents of apricot, peach and light herb are present. On the palate, this white blend pleases with tastes of pear, green apple, playful acidity and an unbeatable smooth finish.
Henry of Pelham has recently released their 2012 vintage (consists of more Viognier than the 2010 vintage), and if it is anything like the 2010, you are all in for a treat. This is a must try and will be gracing one of two of our upcoming patio meet-ups.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $17.95
We gave this wine a 5 out of 5
