Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is what Viognier is all about in my books. A fuller weight white without the oak. Softer acids, and lovely floral elements provide a nice counterpoint for Chardonnay lovers. Also, what a price !! Weight, floral and price had my heart.
Love this aromatic, vibrant and dry Viognier from the McManis Family Vineyards (2016). Ripe peach on the nose with even riper stonefruit and soft orange citrus flavours on the palate. McManis succeeded in having their vineyard in the River Junction recognized as its own AVA, because of its unique mesoclimate. Pair with pan-seared panfish. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
