|Tasting Notes / Comments:||Pale green gold in color, spearmint, sweet hay and a touch of smoke on the nose. Pretty flavors of mint jelly, ripe apricot, vanilla, and acacia flowers all intertwine in this delicate and well-balanced wine. Its good acidity and chalky minerals make for a nice match with food. A delicious wine!!|
Virginia Wine Guide (2001 vintage)
Tropical, heady, ripe and downright delicious are but a few words flung liberally about when dishing this wine. Bursting at the seams with lively honeysuckle, citrus and images of far away places, this wine lights up the tongue with a youthfully fresh, vibrant texture. A fickle grape in anyone's vineyard, Madera grower John Simpson faithfully coaxes out the very finest personalities of this once rare, blessedly salvaged Rhone varietal. So order up the sushi, splash a few bottles of Miner Viognier on ice, make those summer getaway plans...and thank us later.
