Barboursville Vineyards Reserve Virginia Viognier 2014

$21.99

A fine follow-up to the Wine Advocate 90 point 2013 - that review is on point here, too: "Fresh, lively, reasonably dense and aromatic, this is completely charming and it comes in at a nice price. The fruit is flavorful on the finish and there is a hint of lemon around the edges. It seems rather lively in its youth. Don't hesitate to dive in–but it will drink great for several years, too."

Apple, candied lemon peel, vanilla, orange blossom, limestone, peach and hints of dried apricot. Great acidity and balance.

Normally I'm not a Viognier person but the perfumes in this are understated and I taste more nectarines and white flowers. And maybe honeysuckle. It's got a nice filler body for a white without getting too much on the waxy side. Quite pleasant if not too complex for a Sunday evening

Wow. What a great example of a Viognier which we originally were introduced to in Virginia. What used to be a blending grape now holds up perfectly well by it's elf. It has the structure comparable to a Chardonnay but a flavor very unique to the grape itself. Scents of buttercup and light floral scents. Taste on the palate is a hearty mouth feel with a hint of Asian pear, subtle touch of lemon and buttery notes. It s so hard to describe as it has the unique taste of the wonderful Viognier grape. A must try. Available through wine.com.

Not the best viognier but enjoyable. Love the aroma than its flavor. Very floral. They definitely got at least the aroma right.

Fragrant and intense but fruity. Like a Chardonnay Full round smooth.

2014. A sense of sweetness made this a great pairing for steamed pork buns.
