Finally a delicious Viognier! If you love Rhone white wines, you probably know how Viognier’s flowery flavor can overwhelm your palate as easily as truffle oil can overwhelm a dish. Well, Anglim found a way to tame the flowers in their Vignier but still respect them and balance that element with great acidity and structure.

Anglim’s wines take the best of the Central Coast regions to make wines quintessential for their vineyards. Their Grenache has wonderfully soft supple strawberry, cherry, and a bit of spice and earth. It’s the perfect picnic, pizza night, or Thanksgiving dinner accompaniment. Their Syrah has coastal bright fruit flavors of blueberry and blackberry with the sweet smell of cherry blossoms but the finish has long legs of chocolate. Bring it to your next barbecue. Their Zinfandel has nice acidity and bright fruit like a Pinot Noir or Sangiovese from its coastal influence. If you’ve steered away from zins because they are too jammy for you, try a coastal zin like this one.
