Weekly Sip: Horton Vineyards Viognier 2005
2005 was a good year for Viognier in Virginia and we have tasted a number of noteworthy selections this year. As elegant as Viognier may be, it is not a wine that gains complexity with age. The best are to be drunk young, so find a bottle and enjoy it as I did the Horton Viognier 2005.
Elegant and floral describes Horton’s current vintage. On the nose are nice floral notes with lush honey, vanilla and apricots flavors on the palate. This wine is priced at $20 (at winery) and can be found at the winery, local wine stores and grocers. Viognier generally pairs well with grilled fish, white meats and mild chesses and of course on its own. Has anyone enjoyed any other Virginia Viognier this year? If so please leave a comment or drop me an email.
