2017 Calera Mount Harlan Viognier, California, USA (750ml)
To underscore the enticing complexity of this cool-climate Viognier, it was crafted using a combination of neutral French oak barrels, stainless steel and concrete tank. Alluring aromas of honeysuckle, white peach and citrus are echoed on the palate, where they mingle with luxurious notes of lemon meringue and jasmine that glide to a bright, zesty finish.
Aromas of toast, lemon preserves, orange marmalade and light almond paste show on the nose of this bottling, which is a very compelling substitute for Chardonnay. There is a toasty core to the sip, where seared melon and orange-peel flavors meet with sea salt and brioche.
