drink me: vina robles viognier

viognier vina roblesgrape: Viognier. If you don’t love Viognier, start drinking it now. Spring is the absolute perfect time for this grape, since your glass basically turns into a bouquet of fresh flowers. Most are from the Rhone in France, but the US is making a little now too, and hooray for that.

producer: Vina Robles

country: USA

region: Paso Robles, CA

year: 2012

yum factors: Beautiful perfume of orange blossom, white flowers (despite my pretty purple hyacinths in the photo), yellow apple, and fresh almond. It has medium acidity and medium-to-light body. So lovely and elegant, and just the perfect amount of body for spring weather too.

price: $22

    • Could be – with smaller grape plantings maybe they’re going for the truer expression of the grape rather than putting their style stamp on it. Haven’t had one from Georgia ever, but cool to know!
