Bonterra Viognier Picmonkey 2

2013 Viognier

 

Bonterra

Mendocino County

Alcohol: 14.5%

Suggested Retail: $16

 

“Another Bonterra wine from certified organic vineyards, this Viognier contains an unspecified amount of Muscat in the blend to amplify the Viognier's natural floral quotient. Peaches and citrus greet the nose, followed by (deeper) flavors of peach and apricot backed by just a hint of brown spice. At 14-and-half alcohol there is substantial weight and viscosity to make this wine substantial enough to pair with heartier foods. Clean, long finish. Would be an interesting alternative to the Chardonnay-as-cocktail order at happy hour.”

Food Affinity: “Veal or poultry with cream sauces. Grilled or baked halibut prepared with Satsuma Mandarin sections.”
