Couleurs Du Sud 2013 Viognier, $9.99-$16.99, 87 points, was a deep brass color trending a straw yellow.
Apple and honeysuckle aromas dominated, but hints of toasted bread and vanilla were complementary.
The light-plus body was rather creamy, but crisp enough to drink alone without being boring.
Flavors followed the aroma profile closely, and carried okay into a slightly truncated finish (while cold) that included mild ginger notes and an innocuous alcohol described by an unusual back label which stated: "ACL 11%-14% By VOL". However, this was one of those white wines that improved as it reached room temperature, adding length, intensified ginger and tangerine notes.
Paired fine with my lemon chicken and pasta.
