Beringer Napa Valley Viognier 2002
from Napa Valley, California
"Peach fuzz and orange zest flavors fill this tight, balanced viognier, its floral notes held as undertones to the smooth, rich fruit. Firmly built, ready for lobster with ginger-infused cream sauce."
-Wines & Spirits
Viognier - a wine I had little experience drinking, much less making, until about five years ago - has a wonderful, somewhat mysterious flavor that makes me think of exotic tropical islands, white orchids, spices and fruits cooled under a waterfall. It took me several years of experimentation before I was satisfied that my winemaking techniques were gentle enough to capture in this Viognier the flavors that left me with those impressions. I love to play up Viogniers distinctive flavor profile by serving it foods like grilled fish with mango salsa, Thai shrimp/coconut/lemongrass soup, or pasta with smoked salmon and cream sauce. -Ed Sbragia, Winemaster
