Reviews For This Wine


 
Vinfolio | 91

The nose is redolent of lemon cream and mineral crispness. The palate is smooth vanilla, and lemon. A very solid California Viognier.

This wine explodes on the palate with orange marmalade, marzipan, lemon zest, honeysuckle and minerals. Greg Bewer (the winemaker) is a freekin' genius - it's as if he's created his own varietal. This has to be one of the greatest Viogniers ever bottled. Highly recommended (if you can find a bottle, that is).

About This Producer


In 1996 Melville Vineyards made the bold move from Knights Valley to the Santa Rita Hills appellation, where Ron Melville and his sons set up the estate property with a focus on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Santa Rita microclimate, with its coastal winds and fog, provided the Melvilles the perfect locale for their 139 planted acres of Pinot, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Viognier. Winemaker Greg Brewer, of Brewer-Clifton fame, oversees production at Melville.
