Oak Grove, Family Reserve Viognier 2014, California
Tasting Note: An affordable house viognier.
Lemon yellow in color this wine has a nose of green melon, pineapple and lemon citrus.
On the palate this dry, medium-bodied viognier shows tart, under ripe lemon citrus on the attack followed by riper green and yellow fruit through to the finish.
The wine is medium in acidity and captures the basic essence of the Rhone style in a straightforward fashion.
Bottle Note: Our family has been making some of California’s finest wines for generations. Choosing only the best fruit from the finest coastal vineyards, we strive for excellence in all of our reserve wines. The best our family has to offer. Sometimes compared to chardonnay, Oak Grove Reserve Viognier has a perfumed and floral character with a slightly oaky finish. Rich and full bodied, this excellent white wine has the body and flavor to stand up to full flavored dishes. Pair with cheese tortellini in a light cheese sauce for a memorable experience.
