Jaffurs Viognier Santa Barbara County 2010
The 2010 Viognier, Santa Barbara County has our classic full mouth feel and a clean, lingering finish. It’s bright yet surprisingly rich, demonstrating Viognier’s dichotomy between opulence and elegance. It combines the fruit from two vineyards: Refugio Vineyard fruit provides a lighter, floral-peach, mineral element to the wine. Bien Nacido Vineyard fruit adds body, glycerin, acid, and a burst of tropical and peach aromas.
Had this as part of a Jaffurs Winemaker dinner Rose and plenty of floral. The first thing I notice was it seems a little sweet for a Viognier. Has notes of papaya, longan and hints of orchids. It is a little acidic and it would be too much to drink a whole bottle. It was an amazing pairing and it worked really well with nuts. There were plenty of elements in the salad to make sure it went well.
