Somehow I've managed to drink a bottle of this Chilean viognier every summer for the last 3 years and didn't realize until last week that I've tried it before. I guess the name 'viognier' always catches my eye.
In the summer of 2010 I wrote "They describe this wine as 'complex, elegant and unique', which sums up this bottle pretty well. It certainly doesn't have the grassiness of so many SBs. I haven't drunk a pinot gris in a while so I can't compare it to those, but this seemed like a pleasant middle-of-the-road white, not too acidic, not too sweet, not overloaded with different notes."
Last year I said "This is a light viognier but it has more substantial nose than the California Kunde I drank last week. It has more subtlety of flavor than a lot of the whites I've drunk this summer. I couldn't identify the notes but I think I got oak. A nice wine, good for a dinner party or friends over."
Maybe this vintage (2007) is getting a little long in the tooth, but I was less impressed with it this summer. I'll agree that it's a pleasant middle-of-the-road white, not too acidic, not too sweet. I wouldn't agree with the subtlety of flavor assessment.
Not a bad wine if you can find it on sale. It would still go great with pasta or seafood.
