2011 Pilliteri Viognier

Pale in color with a bright floral nose typical of a Viognier. On the mid palate the wine displays floral notes to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lively acidity along with some nice citrus notes. I was suprised how good this was, I often am not fond of Viogniers. This one is good. Should be pretty food freindly too. I would give it an 88 or so. Not in the LCBO but $20.20 at the winery.

From the winery’s web site:
Rich aromas of fresh peaches, buttered toast, vanilla bean and orange blossoms on the nose. This medium-bodied wine is well integrated and has a bright acidity. Once you dive into the glass, notes of honeydew melon and baking spices dominate the palate. Sourced from 20+ year old vines located on the Winery property, the grapes produced a richly flavoured Viognier similar to those found in the Rhone Valley in France.
