2015, Orange County, Virginia
95% Viognier/5% Petit Manseng
Barrel Fermented, French Oak.
A complex wine, Viognier fills a unique niche in wine pairings as it distinctly stands apart from Chardonnay with a floral nose and lower acidity, yet its fruitiness doesn't overpower the palate in the tone of a sweet white wine.
Horton Vineyards 2015 Viognier has received positive reviews for its subtle hints of pineapple and pair, yet with a mild acidity, which makes for a complex and interesting wine. Well paired with a variety of foods, this wine also serves as a perfect summer sipper.
Enjoy this wine with light meats and seafood, such as our Flounder Piccata.
