Alban Vineyards Viognier Edna Valley Alban Estate Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Possibly the finest Viognier John Alban has produced that gets better year after year. This white wine exhibits an intense perfume of apricots honeysuckle and assorted tropical fruits. It reminded me of Guigal's Condrieu La Doriane because of its good underlying acidity and fabulous texture as well as length. This beauty should drink well for 2-3 years.

Alban Vineyards is a wine estate in Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo County, California. Winemaker John Alban is credited with being one of the first Californians to plant the Rhone varietals Viognier, Rousanne, and Syrah in 1989. His successful pioneering efforts led the way for the California Rhone Ranger movement and have since been a significant source for these varietals for other winemakers and his own Alban Vineyards label. He sources Mourvedre and Grenache from Paso Robles where hotter conditions are more conducive to growing those grapes. Apart from white and red single varietal releases and blends, Alban also produces a dessert wine with botrytis grapes called Rotten Luck. Read less

I liked this wine, but was disappointed overall. It was a little on the cloudy side. It was not very crisp. I also thought it a little too dry. I did not think it was very fruitty. I expected to like it much better.

17th vintage for this Rhone style pioneer. Unfiltered and unfined the wine shows lemon custard, exotic citrus and pear notes with a hint of smoke. Definitely worth a try.
