This particular bottle came with my WineQ shipment and set me back $21.99. I must also add it's a classy bottle - the label and the writing on the back is etched on. No paper labels and dead trees here!
But what's inside? This medium-gold wine featured prominent apricot aromas, along with floral, ripe peach, mineral and powdered cocoa elements. It has been a while since I've had a Condrieu, but there was no mistaking the resemblance - much more so than any other non-French Viognier I can remember drinking.
Taste-wise, it was full and forward with apricots and peaches, a slight bitter character, and a bit of alcohol bite. The acidity arrived in the mid-palate. I'd say drink it now.
Two thumbs up on this one.
