2012 Hawley Winery Viognier, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, CA, $27 – Rating 91

Hawley is a consistent producer of high quality Viognier. The flavor profile of this white wine usually sits somewhere between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Hawley’s Viognier is fermented in neutral oak barrels giving it a softer mouth-feel with balanced acidity. A zesty nose of citrus and tropicals with flavors of citrus, white peach, minerality and the softest hint of honeycomb as it opens. A wonderful alternative to the more common whites. Buy This Wine
