Great Viognier should be a deep, rich mouth-filling wine that touches all the senses. The trick is to harvest at the point where acidity counterbalances the richness of flavor
The wine's aromas have a concentrated depth: apricot, fresh peach, honeysuckle and minerals with a hint of spearmint. Flavors of nectarine and lemon zest linger through a pronounced finish.
This very limited wine comes from an allocation-list only winery who limits the Viognier to only their most loyal members. However, they do reserve a case or two for their restaurant clientele...
Here we are in 2020, with restaurants being closed for months.Suddenly, this rare wine had no place to go. We made a connection withthe owner, tasted the wine, and confirmed the provenance, then made a deal that we could all be happy with.
If you liked the recent Russian River Pinot Noir and Chardonnay offerings, you will love this one too!
