2011 Cristom "Estate" Eola-Amity Hills Viognier
Wine & Spirits
This viognier, with its cool vintage character, possesses remarkable refinement and grace. Its peach blossom scents suggest pinot gris at first, but as the wine comes up in temperature its phenolic range seems to come to life, with flavors of pear, white flowers and white peach, guided by a firm, acidity-driven line. Drinking a bit lean now, this should develop beautifully. Serve with fire-roasted razor clams.
Crisp and lively, with a shot of acidity balancing the richness in this spicy, citrusy and floral white. Sleek finish. Drink now through 2016. 574 cases made.
