Succession Wines 2016 Viognier, Columbia Valley, $26

By on January 14, 2018

This Lake Chelan winery has crafted one of the best versions of this white Rhône grape that we’ve seen. Aromas of jasmine, pears and apricots, followed by classic flavors of orange Creamsicle and a hint of dried apricot in the finish. Just a touch of sweetness cleans up Viognier’s natural bitterness. It won gold and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.
