IWC 91 WA 90 Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Light yellow. Fresh lemon and peach aromas are complemented by notes of violet, white pepper and beeswax. Pliant, gently creamy citrus and pit flavors are enlivened by tangy minerality, which adds lift and nervy cut. A hint of succulent herbs comes up on the sharply focused, spicy finish, which lingers on. Quite racy for the variety, especially for a New World version.
According to Wine Advocate - A beautifully done Viognier that has both richness and freshness, the 2012 Viognier Estate Verna’s, which had no malolactic fermentation and spent three months in neutral barrel, offers up classic white peach, white flower, apricots and hints of honey blossom as well as medium-bodied, textured palate and a clean, focused finish. Drink this beauty over the coming year or two. Drink now-2014.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Although this wine is dry, it’s satisfyingly rich with honeysuckle, apricot, orange, mango and peach flavors. Made without malolactic fermentation, its citrusy acidity heightens and brightens the fruit, giving it a clean mouthfeel and finish. This is the winery’s best Viognier in years. 15% ABV.
