Melville Viognier Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Estate Verna's 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Comes off as a bit woody at first then notes of pressed flowers, honeysuckle, white pepper and subtle herbs reach the nose. A touch clumsy in the mouth with a bit of viscosity and a touch of heat that gives the finish a bit of a bit and a touch of bitterness. Fairly typical California Viognier.

Exotic aromas of grilled pineapple, macadamia, honeycomb and prickly pear mix with intriguing notes of ginger, sage, tuberose and yellow blossom. The rich mouthfeel expands on these components while maintaining a crisp and energizing finish.

A Santa Barbara Viognier that's full of incredibly ripe stone fruits. Unoaked but rich with texture and dense fruit extract.
