Natalie's Score: 89/100

The Lodi region in California offers a terrific climate and soils for Viognier, especially of the floral, highly aromatic style like this one. Bursting with notes of Asian pear, apple blossom and wild white field flowers. Lovely white floral notes with some peach. Medium-bodied and mouth-watering. Crisp, dry finish. Perfect for Asian dishes.

Viognier food pairings: potato, chickpea and lentil green curry, spaghetti with clams, mussels and bay scallops, saffron potato cakes.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Sweet orchard fruit, honeysuckle, and spice persist on this bright and unadultered Viognier from Lodi, California. Unoaked, it allows the fruit to shine bright and makes it a terrific choice for enjoying with spicy Asian dishes, creamy butternut squash soup, or fish tacos. Tasted April 2016. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This California Viognier is unoaked and produced from the winery's Clay Station vineyard which is sustainably farmed and certified by Protected Harvest. Located in the Lodi foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this vineyard is named after the famous stagecoach stop used during California's Gold Rush. The soils benefit from the run-off of the Sierra Mountains with lots of minerals and diverse soils. Tiny partials of granite and stone cobbles make for excellent drainage. Loaded with tree fruit aromas. Very fragrant. - Community Wine Review
