Just sip one glass and you'll hear a tale. A tale of a tasteful trip. That started with this Viognier, aboard this winery ship. The mate was a mighty winemaker, the assistant brave and sure. The Twisted Few set sail that day for a winemaking tour, a winemaking tour. The weather started getting rough, the vineyard almost lost. If not for the courage of the cellar crew the flavors would be lost, the flavors would be lost. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah something something something isle, and Mary Ann, in this Twisted Oak Wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
“It’s like going into a department store, and before your can say ‘Stop!’ some perky thing in a floral print blasts you with the latest from Yves St. Ralph!” Not this Viognier! Sure, you will detect hints of honeysuckle, but peaches take center stage upstairs in the Aroma Dept. Meanwhile, in the Flavor Dept. (1st floor, just past Lingerie), you’ll taste peaches along with apricot and honey flavors, finishing up with spicy acidity. Perfect for your holiday, or everyday, shopping experience!
Vineyard Notes
67% Dalton Vineyards, Angels Camp

Food Pairing Notes
He said creamy! Soft creamy cheeses, BBQ’d Chicken, Spanish or Asian dishes. Or how about: Grilled Viognier Prawns: Sauté garlic, salt, finely chopped mango and Pineapple, add Viognier and just enough coconut milk to make it a little sticky when the wine reduces. Add wasabi and minced ginger to taste. Marinate prawns in their broken shells 2 hrs and grill over plain charcoal.

Ahoy Mateys! Just getting back from a nice bit o' raiding - and the plunder was quite good - two casks of wine we took from the bellies of their boats, and tonight I aims to be a drinkin' em...I'll share 'em with me crew of course, but I may get me some extra if they be good! This first one had Viognier 2012 stenciled on the side...

This be a fair wine, me hearties, with a lovely golden color that goes well with my chest of coins in the corner...

Sniffy Sniff Time - Ah, smells like the tresses of a lady fair...full of honeysuckle and apples.

Tasty Taste Time - well, here there be apples, with toasted bread, possibly buttered a bit, and creamy oak. This wine is a smooth one as well, with a bit o' zing on the finish!

I've had me fair share of Viogniers, ya scallywags, and this one is quite good! It's a bit heavier in body than others, but tasty, I says! And this bein' a white wine, that's a good thing! Next up, we break open the red!

Rubber Chicken Thoughts, by Sir Cluckles - Bawk ba-bawk bawk. Bawk bawk bawk. Bawk ba-ba-gawk, ba-gawk. Bawk Bawk. Ba-Gawk!

Bas vers le haut, Mateys...Arrrr!
