Viognier


ADELAIDA Viognier Estate Paso Robles 2013
90 points. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - March 2015

"Hints of sweet toast and bare touches of lemon custard align with moderately deep, peachy fruit in the interesting aromas of this fairly substantial wine, and, even if steering in the direction of ripeness and showing a touch of heat for its sins, it is a deep and balanced Viognier of real richness and unwavering varietal focus. It is far from retiring, but given its youth and its slight back-end tightness, we would opt for a bit more time in the bottle."

ADELAIDA Viognier Anna's Vineyard 2013
90 points. Vinous, Antonio Galloni - September 2015
"Pale, green-tinged gold. Potent, mineral-tinged aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, honeysuckle and ginger. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering juicy melon and tangerine flavors and a refreshingly bitter touch of pear skin. Expands and deepens nicely on the lingering fruity finish."

"Adelaida has hit the Viognier varietal mark smartly with each of its 2013 offerings, and this bottling from Anna’s Vineyard is by a small margin the biggest and ripest of the bunch. It smacks of near-buttery richness with sweet oak and juicy, decidedly peachy fruit to spare, and, if like its mate, it finishes with a perceptible touch of heat, it toes the line of being too much of a good thing without quite stepping over."
 
ADELAIDA Viognier Anna's Vineyard 2012

95 points. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - February 2014

"Its youthful tightness at first whiff notwithstanding, this wine delivers deep and exceptionally well-focused Viognier varietal notes of peach, pear and jasmine with a minerally streak in the background of its inviting aromas. Very full on the palate and running to unctuousness in texture and flavor, yet not at all heavy at any point, it is bound to outlast its early-times firmness and fill out further. As nice as it is today, this wine will happily reward a few years patience." 

ADELAIDA Viognier Anna's and Glenrose Vineyard 2011
91 points. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - August 2013

"This is not the first time that Adelaida has hit the mark with Viognier, and this full and very generous offering is rife with honeysuckle, peaches and Asian pears, yet it does not trade on sweetness and is singularly driven by fruit. It allows just a touch of heat to emerge at the finish, but it is exceptionally well-balanced and built for the table, and it never once wanders to excess."

ADELAIDA Viognier Glenrose Vineyard 2010
90 points. Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - March 2013

"Rich, ripe and well-fruited with a keen sense of sweet peaches and a trim of hardwoody spice that runs its length, this explicit and very continuous offering is all Viognier at its heart. It is full-bodied and slightly oily in texture with good balancing acidity for brightness and life, and, while it's finishing heat is no surprise, neither is it a significant distraction. There is no need to rush in drinking it up, but it is a deep and thoroughly enjoyable wine that is ready to go now."

ADELAIDA Viognier Glenrose Vineyard 2009
92 points. Wine Advocate, Robert Parker Jr. - August 2011

"The 2009 Viognier is gorgeous. Layers of juicy peach, mango, flowers and minerals emerge from this textured, elegant wine. The integration of the 100% French oak (34%) new is simply brilliant. A long, polished finish rounds things out nicely. This is a beautifully balanced, harmonious white that merits serious consideration." - Antonio Galloni

ADELAIDA Viognier 2008
90 points. Wine Advocate, Robert Parker Jr. - August 2010

"The 2008 Viognier from the Glenrose Vineyard has a quasi-European, finesse style to it, although it is hard to hide the more tropical side of this varietal in California. Some nice minerality intermixed with apricot marmalade and tropical fruit is buttressed by crisp acidity in this rich, medium to full-bodied, dry, fleshy wine. It should drink nicely for 1-2 years. "

ADELAIDA Viognier 2007
90 points. Wine Advocate, Robert Parker Jr. - August 2009

"More exotic and flamboyant is the 2007 Viognier Glenrose Vineyard. It possesses plenty of apricot and jammy peach characteristics in addition to good crisp acidity underlying its exuberant floral and tropical fruit-filled personality. Fresh, full-bodied, and impeccably well-balanced, it, too, should be consumed in its first 1-2 years of life."

ADELAIDA Viognier 2004
90 Points. Wine Advocate, Robert Parker Jr. - August 2006

"The flamboyant 2004 Viognier Glenrose Vineyard's litchi nut and rose petal-scented nose is followed by deep, full-bodied flavors, excellent ripeness, and a fleshy texture as well as finish."
