Twisted Tree Viognier Roussanne 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

This wine is under the old Twisted Tree label - now superseded by the Moon Curser moniker. An excellent wine, this blend is nonetheless a bit over-dominated by the citrus-rind of the Viognier which gives the wine the illusion of warmth and some lingering bitterness on the finish. More Roussanne and less Viognier in-your-face almond bitterness would have made this wine perfect for the price. I shall be stocking up despite this comment. This is a wine that BC should be using as an exemplar in whites. 89 points.

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 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
