Pepperwood Grove Viognier 2005 Wine Review (NW)


Tasting notes:

Lemons, peach, and apricot on the nose

Citrus core

Finishes with floral notes, honey, and white grape

Actually, this is not a bad little wine! I see the Pepperwood Grove wines everywhere, but I rarely spot the Viognier. For a bargain label developed by Sebanstiani, this is decent stuff.

It has a simple, fruity quality that is pleasing and tastes like real wine. I paid $7 for the bottle, and that seems to be a pretty typical price. Raise a glass!

we buy it in florida at $57 a case..last year we stayed in Condriu France (the ancestral home of viognier) where the conditions are perfect for this grape so we got to know it......Pepperwood sells at a fraction of the wine there and its really pretty good....Condriu produced viognier starts around 35 Euros a bottle or like $55.
