Twisted Tree Vineyards White Rhone Blend Marsanne Roussanne 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

This Lake Osoyoos white has a nose of stewed fruit such as apricots, peaches, mango and guava together in a kind of harmonic presence. Upon entry, there is the slightly oily viscosity lovers of these grapes (especially Roussanne) know well; there is more stone fruit and that mystifying yet enticing orange Pekoe tea on the palate. This wine is a match for any but the best Rhone whites. And bravo on the price too!

We established Twisted Tree Vineyards and Winery in 2004, when we moved to Osoyoos with hopes of pursuing our dream of making great wine in the beautiful Okanagan Valley.

We established Twisted Tree Vineyards and Winery in 2004, when we moved to Osoyoos with hopes of pursuing our dream of making great wine in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. We purchased the six acre Class I viticultural parcel of land on the east bench above Lake Osoyoos in early 2004, and spent the remainder of the year preparing it for planting. We have now planted six noble vinifera varietals on this spectacular hillside site. Our home site planting was followed by a 2006 planting on additional three additional acres of prime vineyard land, also located on the Osoyoos east bench. We both love wine, and the wonderful process of creating each new vintage from the fruit grown right here in the Valley. We have had the good fortune to work with growers who take enormous pride in the quality of fruit they produce in their vineyards. We honor their dedication and commitment to excellence in viticultural practices by adhering to a simple winemaking philosophy based on respecting the individual character of each wine, and encouraging the expression of that character by gentle fruit handling and minimal intervention at each stage of the winemaking process. Please contact us through this website if you’d like more information about our winemaking practices, or the wines we make. Read less
