What They Said:
Per quaffability “Here the nose is apples and peaches. The mouth is more apricoty like you expect, but also tastes like citric acid. Lots of peaches on the short finish. A little off-dry. Not bad, especially with spicy stir-fry.”
What I Think:
This wine interested me as I have been seeking out Viognier. I’ve had some from the US and Australia and this was the first from France. It is interesting to compare and contrast the styles by area. The US variety is a sweeter bunch and to date my favorite. The Aussies make ita little straight forward. While I enjoy it in their Shiraz I wasn’t thrilled about it on its own. As for France, this effort wasn’t bad, I’m not seeking it but if 11 bottles are in the cart this could be the 12th.
Rating: 12th Bottle
