Wine Find: 2009 Loredona Viognier

September 28, 2010|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

This exuberantly fruity, floral white wine is an unusually good value for a viognier. Just slightly off-dry, it offers lively flavors of peaches, apricots, citrus fruits, cherries, minerals and spices. A wine this fresh is best consumed young, though it's not showing any signs of fragility. It's an easy wine to sip on its own, but it would make a great pairing with lobster.
