Values Wine Picks July 20, 2010

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: July 12, May 14, November 15 and October 16.

White Wine

Fielding Estate Winery Viognier 2009, Niagara Peninsula, Canada: Jumps out of the glass and pulls you head first! Magnificent concentration and seductive aromas of lychee and rose petal scattered on a bed of happiness. Criminally great ... should be licensed to chill.
