Honey Moon Viognier 2011

11#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
Vintage:  2011
Appellation:  California
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.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  See “About” for the full disclaimer.
