WINE OF THE WEEK

June 14, 2000|By Michael Dresser

1999 Preston of Dry Creek Viognier, Dry Creek Valley ($18). Fruit of all kinds is in abundance in this exotic dry white wine made from the viognier grape, which produces the famed Condrieu of France's Rhone Valley. There's pear and papaya, melon and litchi, mango and hints of honey -- all seasoned with a hint of white pepper. This Sonoma County wine shows considerable body, but none of it comes from oak. Drink this fragrant and floral American beauty while it's young and fresh -- ideally on a warm evening this summer with grilled seafood.
