Melville Viognier Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Estate 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Melville Verna's Viognier Santa Barbara 2007 94 Pts Robert Parker! 4 Btl Limit! : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 94 POINTS The 2007 Viognier Vernas Vineyard may be the finest example of this varietal I have tasted in California. Extraordinary minerality and precision, despite its enormous power, are what sets it apart from most blowsy, loosely constructed Viogniers. It possesses copious quantities of nectarine, mango, and orange blossom aromas as well as a hint of lychee nuts, but it is the wines well-delineated character that is so remarkable. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years. From one of the Santa Rita Hills superb vineyard sites, the Melville wines are made by Greg Brewer.NVWE NOTES: This is a well-defined but juicy-rich Viognier, packed with dried fruit, apricot, lychee, citron and tropical flower scents. It's downright plush on the palate, where strong floral honey notes join flavors of peach butter, jasmine and a hint of clove. The finish lingers nicely and proves crisp enough to add refreshment, despite the super-richness. Built for flavorful meals, it might see its best service with Mango chicken, or one of the milder coconut curries. WINEMAKER NOTES: Exotic fragrances of several white nuances such as peaches, apricots, currants, chocolate and oily flowers emanate from the glass. Aromatics also drift toward dried tropical fruits, fresh coconut, hazelnut oil and sake. The wine has excellent viscosity and verve ending with both weight and a minerally-driven vein.MELVILLE VERNA'S VIOGNIER SANTA BARBARA 2007 94 PTS ROBERT PARKER! 4 Btl Limit!
