Inaugural release of a new label of Rhone-inspired wines by Naramata winemaker Dwight Sick, in collaboration with Roche Wines. Of note is the impressive packaging highlighted by an amulet styled medallion. This is a blend of mainly Viognier (90%) from two differing sites with 10% Marsanne yields. It offers inviting aromas of honey and stone fruit, followed by a well-balanced peach and citrus-toned palate defined by juicy acidity with some peppery notes towards the close. Six months on lees in mainly used French oak, unfined and unfiltered. Gentle decanting recommended.
