Barboursville Reserve Viognier 2017
#100 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2019
Absence of oak aging combines with extravagant lees contact and exclusion of oxygen in stainless steel to protect and concentrate welcoming aromatics and luscious flavors, fine for cellaring. Juicy and bright pear, passion fruit, and hints of citrus on a gently herbal frame.
Wonderful with the traditional pairings of fish, shellfish, poultry and Asian cuisine.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Loads of fresh lemons are delivered on a bed of white flowers to make up the aroma. Ripe lemon and calamansi take on a lightly pithy edge on the palate, which is loaded with juicy acidity and crushed minerals. White pepper tones slink in on the long juicy finish.
