Helwig Viognier 2013
Review by Eric Tansey, CSW
Viognier is a variety more commonly known in the Rhône region of France than in the U.S., but the U.S. is quickly changing the game. The grape is gaining popularity and America is putting its stamp on it by consistently producing award-winning Viognier wines. If you have not tried Viognier, this bottle provides a classic example. It is abundantly floral on the nose, nearly like walking into a flower shop. On the palate you will find underripe peach and pear, with a hint of pineapple. This wine has a medium body mouth feel, with a good balance of acidity and fruit. Enjoy it with chicken dinners or as a go-to for lounging on the front porch.

This is a refreshingly good, dry white wine. The nose is like walking into a flower shop and the palate exudes a fruit forward splash, with a crisp and bright, acidic finish.— Eric Tansey
