Our Adagio 2016 Viognier is from the Lodi region of California. A golden amber color leads us to fresh white flowers such as orange blossom. Later on, apple, grapefruit, peach and almond characters take over. The main attraction of Viognier resides in its powerful, rich and complex mouth structure. Some wine critics often compare Gewürztraminer and Viognier for their similar aroma-flavor profiles. The mouth is bright and aggressive with a fair amount of acidity.
This straightforward wine has clean, dry lines that can be enjoyed on the porch all summer long with steamed clams, grilled striped bass, chicken wings, roast turkey or spicy fishcakes. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Grilled Bass with Strawberry Salsa.
