Speed Tasting #7

2009 Barboursville Viognier. This was the first commercial vineyard in VA. Pineapple, tropical, floral, very aromatic. Total stainless steel fermented, left on the lees for 11 months. Has a nice spicy note on the nose. Honeysuckle and pear on the palate with the spice from the nose following through. A wonderful wine. VA can do great things with Viognier. Retails for $20-$22 and can be found in VA, NY, NC, W.Va and are gearing up to sell across the country.
