Freemark Abbey 2012 Viognier – Wine of the Week Review
Posted By Barnaby Hughes On September 2, 2013 @ 11:00 am In Wine, Spirits, Beer & More | No Comments
Region: Napa Valley, California
Varietal: 100 percent Viognier
Production: 1,503 cases
Alcohol: 15.1 percent
Tasting Notes: At the Judgment of Paris in 1976, California wines triumphed over French wines in a blind tasting. Freemark Abbey was the only California winery to have both a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay selected to compete. The winery’s 2012 Viognier is a crisp, full-bodied wine. Its heady tropical fruit and floral aromas entice upon entry. Citrus and stone fruit flavors in the mouth culminate in a clean, dry finish.
Food Pairings: Spicy Asian noodle dishes and salads
