2016 Viognier (Zotovich Vineyards)
Zotovich Vineyards, Viognier, Santa Rita Hills, California, US 2016100% Viognier RIPE STONE FRUIT & TROPICAL PERFUME, OPULENT YET BALANCED Northern Rhone native, Viognier, has become increasingly important and well known/loved beyond its home turf of Condrieu. It's not unusual for more Mediterranean and California offerings to cross over into unctuousness, but this beauty absolutely gets it right. Given that Zotovich’s mission is to authentically showcase the grapes of Burgundy and the Northern Rhone, it shouldn’t be surprising that they’ve nailed it. Serving Suggestion: Scallops w/ white wine, butter, & scallions. Sweet potato & black bean enchilada w/ cumin, coriander, & provencal herbs.
