2016 McManis Viognier

September 14, 2018 - Norman Bentley

The report from the "Little Cottage by the Sea" is that the fishing is decent, the seafood is great, and there are abundant quantities of good wine to pair with the occasion! The first wine we sampled was a 2016 Viognier from the folks at McManis Family Vineyards in northern California.

The McManis opens with a fragrant nose which has the aroma of a big basket of fresh flowers, surrounded by ripe fresh picked fruit, with peach and pear being the most pronounced. The flavors swirl in the glass with an abundance of pear and ripe peach, and a hint of melon. The finish is crisp and clean, with a touch of tangy spice at the end. The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 88.

Viognier is perfect with spicy foods like Thai Scallops, or Sushi with generous amounts of Wasabi. It is also a great companion for a range of seafood, from Grilled Grouper to Mango Salsa Shrimp Tacos.

price : $11 - $15

score: 88
