I often like viognier but not this time. I tend to like Sauvignon Blanc and other refreshing, low oak whites. At first I thought this wine was oaked but it isn't. Maybe what I tasted (a sort of creamy, lychee nut flavor) was the result of the winemaker leaving this wine on the lees for a few months (see winemaker notes). This may appeal to those of you who like oaked chardonnay.
I've not been a fan of a lot of whhites from Latin America, but that is changing there is a growing selection of brighter, less oaked whites to choose from. I would have been very happy paying substantially more for this wine. Buy a case.
Crisp, balanced with citrus and a bit of flint on the finish.
Purchased this on the RP recommendation and had to re read the review after drinking it to make sure I hadn't made a mistake. This is a very dense, backward wine that is said to be "a joy" to drink now though shows no sign of that whatsoever. When I looked again at the review, I noted the qualifier "not especially vibrant". This is the salient characteristic of the wine. Suggest you leave this one for the initiated.
I liked but didn't love this. It is oaky & spicy (clove, pepper) but lacked identifiable (to me) fruit. Worth trying but with a lot of other great wine out there for the same price...
