2007 Bridlewood Central Coast Reserve Viognier
From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, green-tinged gold. Peach, pear and mint on the nose, with a subtle lime zest quality adding verve. Fresh orchard and citrus flavors are a touch sweet, which would make this a good match with spicy Asian fish or chicken dishes. The smooth, clinging finish leaves a juicy peach note behind." (Nov/Dec '08) From Robert Parker's "Value Issue:" "The 2007 Viognier Reserve possesses classic notes of apricots and honeysuckle as well as good fruit, acidity, and freshness. Drink it over the next year." (08/08) Why drink chardonnay when there's fresh, aromatic viognier from the Central Coast? Blooming with honeysuckle, melon and tropical fruit aromas, this wine intoxicates from first sniff. In the mouth it's clean and round, with honeyed tropical fruit and food-friendly acidity.
