Aromatically complex with citrus and honeysuckle notes on the nose and a plush feel on the palate, our Viognier consistently displays a fine balance of natural acidity and intense concentration. Sourced from John Simpson's low-yielding vineyards in Madera, this quintessential food wine was whole cluster pressed and stainless steel fermented to allow the vibrant, tropical and stone fruit characteristics of this varietal to shine.

Wine Enthusiast

Miner has struggled with this wine, which comes from the Central Valley, over the years, but with this '09, they've achieved a breakthrough. That may be due to the cool weather of the vintage. The wine shows crisp, clean acidity, as well as Viognier's tropical fruit and floral flavors.

Score: 89. —Steve Heimoff, April 01, 2011.
