Miner Viognier 2007
Creamy soft viognier. Sour grapefruit with short finish. A little disappointing but have found recent vintages of viognier from California.
Pretty bouquet, but also quite hot. Flabby in the mouth and lacking a pleasant aftertaste.
This wine smells extremely sweet, but is smooth and very close to a chardonnay. The light golden color is gorgeous in a carved crystal glass and the wine works very well with roasted pork tenderloin. The taste is crisp, but not overpowering. It finishes smooth and the taste tapers off to a light aftertaste that is extremely mellow. Though this is a white wine, the taste of fresh barrels comes through and all of the fruit. There are peach notes and a hint of plum. Similar to a chardonnay, but has a taste all of its own.
