Cinquante Cinq 2014 Viognier

Cinquante Cinq 2014 Viognier, $15.29-$16.99, 90 points, was a lovely bright golden color grading clear at the glass shallows.
Aromatic tangerine, orange peel, and honeydew melon with a floral component were wonderful.
Light-bodied, good acidity, and excellent flavors of wet stones, citrus, and melon fruits were outstanding.
Finished well on the trailing palate, a pale spearmint, and an innocuous 12.5% alcohol.
This was a rather bold Viognier, and whether you want your white wine to complement or contrast with your cuisine will determine what you serve this with (think drink by itself too); I complemented mine with broccoli and carrots in a cheddar cheese sauce.
Bought at the Whole Foods of Bedford, NH.

  1. The choice of wines at your disposal (Whole Foods selection in Napa is just OK in my opinion), never ceases to amaze me. This Viognier sounds great.
