Cline Viognier 2017

North Coast, California, United States
233 days ago

Donna scored this wine: 90/100

Peach and apricot flavours blend with a creamy texture in this Sonoma Valley Viognier. Fermented at cooler temps and aged in steel vats, this wine deliciously balances acidity and minerality. Perfect sunny afternoon sipping wine! Tasted: April 19, 2018 California Wine Fair Ottawa

Donna scored this wine: 90/100

This Chardonnay has hints of butter and toffee on the nose. Surprising tropical fruit flavours follow blended with butter and vanilla. Would be delicious paired a creamy seafood dish. Tasted, April 19, 2018 California Wine Fair Ottawa

Wente Vineyards Morning Fog Chardonnay 2016

Livermore, California, United States
233 days ago

Donna scored this wine: 89/100

The 2016 vintage continues the success of the 2015. After 5 months spent 50% in American Oak and 50% Stainless steel, the result is a buttery blend of tropical fruit with a hints of oak and vanilla. A full bodied Chardonnay that balances acidity and minerality with a refreshing finish. Tasted: April 19, 2018 California Wine Fair Ottawa, Ontario

Medium bodied Grenache that is deep garnet in colour. Ripe berries on the nose and tongue. Light on tannins with a shallow finish. Good wine for price point. Drink on it's own or with a cheese board. Tasted November 24, 2017
