delicious stone fruits, a bit tropical, definitely enough body to stand up to heavier fish

A delightfully crisp wine that is bursting with tropical fruits and spices. It’s brilliant as an apéritif, but its freshness will also brighten up just about any meal you can think of.

CaliforniaCline Cellars Viognier offers a fine reward for the white wine lover seeking to venture beyond Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. The Viognier grape varietal is most famous in Condrieu, in the northern Rhone of France, but California is producing some outstanding wines at a fraction of the price of Condrieu. In a recent Wall Street Journal column on American Viogniers, Cline Cellars was judged Best Value and described as:...elegant and peachy, with just the right amount of mouthfeel.We find this California Viognier is a true white wine gem!Cline Cellars Viognier comes from grapes handpicked in three growing regions of California. Solano County fruit is blessed with plentiful sunshine to yield maximum flavors. Mendocino grapes contribute to the wine's fullness of body. Cline's Carneros vineyards were chosen for their long, cool growing season. The soil there is rich with minerals and rarely needs irrigation, and the vines are cooled by coastal breezes. Long hang-time results in superb concentration of fruit, with no oak to interfere with the natural beauty of Viognier.Cline Cellars Viognier is deep yellow-gold in color with a gorgeous nose of peaches, apricots, orange blossoms and honeysuckle. It is full-bodied with a rich mouthfeel and flavors of peach, apricot and mango. Well balanced to enjoy over the next 3-5 years, the wine is long and rich on the finish.Enjoy Cline Cellars Viognier as an aperitif wine and with grilled snapper with fruit salsa, fried oysters, stir-fry vegetables and spicy Thai dishes.

It is difficult to find inexpensive Viognier, but Cline Cellarsrsquo; 2010, while not quite as interesting as their Pinot Gris, is certainly an authentic Viognier. Notes of white peach, apricot jam, honeysuckle and assorted tropical fruits emerge from this fresh, light to medium-bodied white along with crisp underlying acidity. At this price, itrsquo;s a steal. Moreover, there are 25,000 cases available.

Floral and focused, with bright peach, lemon and tangy apple flavors that will show well with food. Drink now through 2003.
