Varietal: Viognier

Tasting Notes: Made from grapes at the edge of Condrieu, the depth and concentration is amazing for a wine at this price. Juicy and fresh and full of peach, apricot, citrus and honeysuckle, it does not overpower the palate.

Parr Vineyards Viognier 2022

Parr Vineyards
Varietal: Viognier
Vintage: 2022
Country of Origin: USA
Appellation: Texas Hill Country
Retail Price: $35.99

Tasting Notes: Texas doesn’t need to grow chardonnay when they grow viognier this great. Robert and Dilek have supplied great fruit to top Texas wineries (William & Chris and Lewis, to name just a few) and have made the transition to producing their own estate-sourced wines. Floral and fresh, with a smooth clean finish. Hints of banana and kiwi. Their 20-acre vineyard is in the heart of the newest Texas AVA: Hickory Sands (pending TTB final approval).

Yalumba Viognier 2016

Varietal: Viognier
Vintage: 2016
Country of Origin: Australia
Appellation: Eden Valley
Retail Price: $19.99

Tasting Notes: Brilliantly crafted quality Viognier. This white entices with delicate floral and nectarine notes. On the palate, the wine is mouth-coating: citrus, pear and apple backed with ginger spice and white pepper with a slightly bitter finish, making this an excellent wine with a variety of foods. One of the most interesting viogniers on the market.
