Black Hills Estate Winery Viognier 2017, Black Sage Bench, Okanagan, British Columbia BC V.Q.A., Canada: A lovely pale straw with golden hints in the glass. This BC Viognier offers attractive aromas of melon, guava, pineapple, mango and toasted almond. Racy acidity and a medium body made it ideal for seafood with a pineapple garnish or field greens peppered with edible flowers.
