Torii Mor Cote d'Mor Viognier 2009
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Sourced form the Sierra Foothills, CA. Nose of honeysuckle, lavender and spice with a floral note that's sweet and enticing. Crisply acidic notes on the palate of florals, white peach, honeysuckle and white flowers. Some black pepper, a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. - Tasted at winery 8/17/10
Food Pairings for Torii Mor Cote d'Mor Viognier
The 2009 Viognier has an aroma that is rich with a mix of honeysuckle, lavender and spices, such as black pepper and dry cooking herbs, with a floral note that is sweet and inviting. The flavors display crisp acidity as the fruit and floral notes of white peaches, honeysuckle and white flowers take over. A spiciness brings the flavors to a crescendo with black pepper, nutmeg, a touch of cinnamon, and dry herbs. All of these flavors culminate into a very long finish. The texture is rich and oily with a very light & sweet creaminess.
