Tortoise Creek Viognier Vin de Pays d'Oc le Verger 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Full of apricots and flowers with some vegetal hints and lime zest. This is fairly fragrant with some chalky, mineral base notes. A little slick on entry, this shows polyphenolic bitterness right up front with apricot fruit working to balance things out. Rather dry and dusty in the mouth, this is a touch soft but pleasant in a neutral sort of way. 83pts

Very floral and grassy. Very nice with some spicy food. Mellows the spice and makes it smooth. Acidic, but the food reduces that.

The flavors are more "quiet" than other Viogniers. Good acidity toning down the fruit, which is more golden apple and less stone fruit, also less cheap perfume aromas, slightly toasty. Nicely done!
