Groundwork viognier

Viognier 2014

Groundwork by Sans Liege

Like stepping from a spring fed mountain lake into an ancient citrus orchard, the 2014 Groundwork Viognier is the perfect accompaniment to any summer moment: snapped orange skin, chalk dust, New York Seltzer Lemon Lime, fennel seed, clean linens and whetstone. Elegant, refined and fresh.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Also outstanding, the value priced 2014 Groundwork Viognier comes from Santa Barbara County (White Hawk and Bien Nacido) and spent 18 months in 15% new French oak. Notes of caramelized citrus, flowers, brioche and pineapple all emerge from this rich, heady, textured and downright intense Viognier that has tons of character. This big, rich white will shine on the dinner table." (Robert Parker)
