About

91

"The 2014 Viognier Reserve is dry, unoaked and comes in at 13% alcohol. This is the current release. What a beauty. Gentle, absolutely perfect in aromatics, elegance and flavor, this has everything you might want in a perfectly balanced Viognier. Tasty and always lifted, it is delicious in its subtle fashion. As I've said before, Barboursville has certainly proven to me that these can age. But I'm not sure why I want to. They don't gain much by aging and this is just perfect now. It would easily be my pick of Barboursville's whites this issue. It's a very nice bargain, too." Reviewed April 2016

Product Description:

"Absence of oak aging combines with extravagant lees contact and exclusion of oxygen in stainless steel to protect and concentrate welcoming aromatics and luscious flavors, fine for cellaring. Juicy and bright pear, passion fruit, and hints of citrus on a gently herbal frame." - Winery
