The White Knight, Viognier 2015, Clarksburg, California
Tasting Note: From California’s Clarksburg district comes a viognier bursting with tropical fruit flavors that presents an American take on this Rhône varietal.
Medium-intensity lemon in color this wine has an aromatic nose of pineapple, green apple, mango lychee and lime citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied viognier delivers on the ripe tropical fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is creamy in texture and is balanced with mid-palate complexity completing with a medium-plus finish.
A viognier to try again.
Bottle Note: Saving the world from the tyranny of chardonnay. Swooping in to rescue your palate from the ordinary, this sleek, rich viognier will excite the senses and tickle your fancy. Flirtatious green apple, honeysuckle and white peach aromas playfully engage with flavors of pear and melon. Lush. Sexy. Alluring.
