Good news, bad news. Good news: This is the best Viognier for under $20 & it’s on clearance at LCBO for $12.65. Bad news: I bought the last bottles, so you’ll have to wait until LCBO restock it stores, hopefully next year.

This wine features peach, pear, apricot, jasmine on the nose, white pepper, orange rind, mandarin & ginger. Medium+ body with good acidity & a fairly long length.

Negatives: All sold out at LCBO.

Drink now on its own or pair it with wahoo ceviche.
