Biondi Viognier 2005

  • Area: California, Mendocino County
  • Grape: Viognier
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black; 87 Dilettante; 90 NWJR; 90
Description: For those looking for an un-oaked white wine without all the citrus, this Viognier is an excellent choice. Flowers, peaches and pears make up the nose on this wine. Lots of glycerin gives this a silky-smooth mouth feel. Flavors of honeycomb, orange blossoms, melon, pears, and just a hint of grapefruit make for a very fruity, dry wine. The finish is lingering and mellow.

Food Pairing: fried cod, lobster, richly prepared seafood
