Winemaking Notes

The third-ever release of a 100% Viognier wine from Le Vieux Pin. After nearly a decade of growing these precious grapes, we finally realized the potential of a very special subplot we are growing these vines on. A measly single barrel (22 cases) output only, but what a jewel of a wine. The nose is a myriad of crushed rocks mingling with exotic tropical notes and even more exotic floral nectars. There is an intriguing saline note in the wine which keeps the fruit/foral dance composed and restrained. On the palate, the wine enters with lushness but quickly pulls back with a solid spine of acidity and dry extract. Never overbearing nor lacking. Equinoxe Viognier is a wine that manages to hit that sweet spot of taking the very best of both the old world and the new
world. Salut!

Pairing

Smoked Salmon and tropical fruit sushi rolls are a favourite pairing. Pan-fried Veal in cream, morel and Provencal herbs sauce is another winner.
