This wine is a rare example of cool-climate viognier; it shows off the flavors of the Northern Rhone region of France more than most California-made viogniers that tend toward the more lush, tropical side. It has flavors of apricot, white peach and hints of citrus, and sports a nice, tight mineral structure with higher acid. I love it with crab cakes or stir-fried pork.
Even though this wine is unoaked and inexpensive, it’s one of the best Viogniers out there. It shows the lean, drily crisp profile of Edna Valley whites, with wildly exotic flavors of citrus, tropical fruits, wildflowers, peaches, pears, minerals and vanilla. At this price, it’s a giveaway.
