Heavyweight Whites

HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONS

These rich, round white wines will have you out of your seats and cheering for more.

Wine drinkers overwhelmingly fall into one of two categories— red wine or white wine enthusiasts. Most white-wine lovers can’t imagine enjoying the taste of a savoury, dry red while red wine drinkers can’t imagine buying a bottle of fruity, light white. 

There are, however, certain wines that make it possible to have the best of both worlds! If you’re on team big, bold red, here is some food for thought— heavyweight whites like Viognier or Chardonnay might just be worth a try.

“Because our heavyweight estate whites are grown in the desert heat of the South Okanagan and then barrel-aged for 4-6 months, these wines deliver a lot more weight on the mid-palate and more complexity in the finish”

“If you love Syrah, you will love this Viognier. All of our wines at Road 13 are made to be balanced so our heavyweight white wines like this Viognier will see anywhere from 4-6 months in oak— depending on the vintage giving it a really nice nose and complex finish.”

2019 Jackpot Chardonnay

Castle Vineyard

Rich apple and pear notes dominate on the palate culminating in a symphony of gold and yellow fruit.

“This Jackpot Chardonnay is a showcase of the rich mineral aspects of the Golden Mile Bench. Barrel fermented and barrel-aged, this wine delivers all kinds of ripe, full-bodied goodness.”
