Alban Vineyards Viognier Edna Valley Alban Estate Vineyard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This could be John Albans best Viognier yet. Heis always been one of my favorites and one of the reasons Viognier became my go-to white wine, whatever time of year. The 2008 vintage exhibits notes of orange marmalade interwoven with honeysuckle and tropical fruits. Fresh, medium to full-bodied, powerful, pure and rich. This is one of the top Viogniers made in California. Will age well over the next 6 years. A very elegantly styled wine that will pair well with rich seafoods, try it with fresh lump crab meat salad or grilled halibut with a mango salsa.

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
