Amongst the Sauvignon Blanc alternatives I offered to customers in my restaurant years, Viognier was and still is a personal favorite even if it is not a Condrieu.
The Lobetia Viognier 2010 shows citrus and peach tones balanced with floral aromas and a taste of honeysuckle on the palate.
The butterfly mosaic gracing the label adds to its charm.
At around $13 retail it will not break the bank.
Thanks to U.S importer Terroir Wine Cellars for introducing me to Lobetia Viognier.
