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.
“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!

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.
