Smoking Loon Viognier 2011
This wine displays a ripe and exotic bouquet of apricot, orange blossom, honey and delicate tropical fruit aromatics. Flavors of mandarin orange, pineapple and nectarine come to play leading through with a hint of toasty vanilla through the finish. Wonderfully complex with lush tropical fruit flavors along with controlled dryness and acidity, this is a lovely versatile wine. Try pairing with spicy crab cakes with a lemon aioli sauce, shrimp scampi or a piece of key lime pie! Serve slightly chilled to preserve the fruit characteristic of the wine.
External Reviews for Smoking Loon Viognier
Smoking Loon Viognier has a wonderful aroma of apricot skin, wrapped around a core of sweet white nectarine. Overflowing with flavor on the palate, mango, orange marmalade, sun-soaked apricot, and grilled pineapple all make an impression on this wine. Full-bodied and rich, this California white finishes with notes of Meyer lemon and candied orange zest. Our winemaking team picked most of these vineyards very ripe at 24.5 Brix for enhanced floral fruit characteristics. Together with 3 months of sur lie aging on French oak, the result is a big, rich California Viognier style that is bursting with character.
