#10 This post represents a minor milestone. It’s the tenth installment in my tasting of wines from the local Trader Joe’s shelves.
Winemaker: Trader Moon (Delicato Vineyards for Trader Joe’s)
Wine: Honey Moon Viognier
Price: $5.99 at Trader Joe’s
Notes: This was a fairly simple, straightforward wine. It had a very strong bouquet of peach and citrus. Primary flavors for me were peach, lime and honey. On the finish the citrus lingers and it gets a tiny bit of grass, too. Although not heavy, the wine has a fat feel in the mouth – as if it had a lipid element to it. Perhaps that has to do with lower acidity. Alcohol is 13%. It was certainly pleasant enough to drink. I could see this as a refreshing cooler to sip in summer.
