Professional Reviews For This Wine


Vinfolio | Rating: 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.

Wine Varietal: Viognier


Viognier possesses highly floral aromatics, a bouquet of fresh stone fruits, and low acid levels. While its golden hue and perfumed fragrance are distinctive, Viognier's creamy texture and richness are strikingly similar to Chardonnay. Finer Viogniers (such as Chateau Grillet and Condrieu in the Northern Rhone) possess the ability to age for decades. Viognier is also used for its fragrance and color when blended with Syrah. Typical descriptors for Viognier include honeysuckle, acacia, fruit blossoms, peach, apricot, mango, pineapple, guava, kiwi, tangerine, hay, anise, and mint.
