2019 Bluebird Passage Viognier
Bright and fresh with aromas of intense stone fruit. A terrific balance of texture and acidity carries this wine to a lengthy finish.
We have found over the years that Viognier grows exceptionally well in the western area of Osoyoos where the semi-arid climate and desert-like conditions provide an ideal environment for grapes with a high skin-to-juice ratio. The Osoyoos Lake and surrounding area has one of the highest concentrations of endangered species in Canada. The Western Bluebird, characterized by a blue throat and rusty upper back and breast, shares some of the Mountain Bluebird’s range in southwestern Canada. Mountain and Western Bluebird populations are increasing after an all time low in the 1970’s. As part of our deep belief in sustainability and living in harmony with the wildlife in our region, we named this wine Bluebird Passage.
