Anakena Lilén Single Vineyard Viognier 2010
Requínoa, Rapel Valley, Chile
Vintages Wine Panel: Opens up with enticing aromas of exotic flowers, white peach and honeydew melon. Dry with a medium-full body and a lovely round, mouth-filling texture. Ripe and very tasty, with impressive balance and a persistent finish. This is a serious Viognier with character to spare. It’ll make a fine summer sipper. My note: Like this! Floral and mild spices without being polarizing. Rose petal and white flowers. Medium-bodied and zippy. Viognier food pairings: grilled chicken breast, pasta primavera. Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2011‐2015  Best Value White Wine  Price: $13.95 Score: 89/100
