Covenant Israel Blue C Viognier 2018

Light lemon in color with a golden hue.

On the nose limes, grapefruits, citrus, minerals, spices and white flowers.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, light grapefruits, spices, light vegetables, guava and black pepper.

Long finish with spices.

This is a very nice Viognier from Israel. Showing nice complexity with tangy finish.

Nice, spicy and engaging, crisp and refreshing.

Good by itself or with food. I had it all by itself by the pool on a warm Florida today.

Light on the nose, but much more complexity on the palate.

Kosher. Not Mevushal.

89 points.

Condrieu Côte Chatillon Viognier 2016

Wow. Delicious . So clean. Oak is fully integrated on open.

Nose is so clean. Fresh. Delicious.

Palate is slightly mineral with mild tropical flavors.

Not profound but well made yummy not Oakes to hell Condrieu. And you want a few of those in the cellar.

I had this with salmon in leek cream sauce and it was a great night.

Bought from fass selections.

Killer Condrieu from a new name. Amazing nose. Floral but also intensely mineral. Yellow fruits, some apricot. So so aromatic but not vulgar. Rich but fresh with excellent acidity and purity. Balanced and finishes mineral and long. Awesome texture. Racy. Like icing on a cake. Long and concentrated. Wonderful. @Delectable Wine it’s Andre Francois. Thanks. — 16 hours ago

La Voix du Periscope Viognier 2018

Such a great wine to finish out the decade. Who would have ever thought I’d love a Viognier this much? Good acidity and minerality, and the skin contact keeps some of the intense aromatic qualities of Viognier in check. A very balanced and interesting wine. Thanks @David Mayfield for sharing! — a month ago

Les Monestiers Collines Rhodaniennes Viognier 2016

Bright straw gold. Nose of underripe banana and white pepper. Palate is full-bodied and yields dried quince, white flowers, and white pepper. Full body. Medium (slightly) minus acidity (of course). Long dark finish. Classically French expression of this wonky Rhône variety. As such it’s more food-friendly than usual, and will particularly complement complex aromatic and flavorful foods. Cream sauces, pesto, and white spices will benefit especially well. Drink now. — 16 days ago

Veritas Vineyard

Monticello Viognier 2015

Before anything I’m compelled to admit my bias and admiration for Veritas Vineyards. I love the place. And with that out of the way, I’m going to describe my experience with the ‘15 Viognier as I experienced it. No fancy words or “miraculously subtle” sorts of “mandatory praise” that one often comes across when they like what they try. The nose of the ‘15 Veritas Viognier brings about that warm feeling on your shoulders of a sunny day, out in the meadow. The exquisite approach and palate imbue the very essence of spring water in summer- round, lush and satisfying for a long, long way. The juicy finish succinctly acts as a juicy, last look and reflection of that gorgeous, borderline resplendent day in the sun that you NEEDED. As a proper & fitting coda, and as an element that only further drew me into this gorgeously-simple experience- it was a twist-off... which truly and most genuinely completed this wine’s perfection, for tonight. — 15 days ago

Estate Eola-Amity Hills Viognier 2014

Body yet refreshing. Not cloying and regal. Went with a variety of foods. Love their reds and not surprised they make a great white. — 5 days ago
