WHAT: Viniterra Terra Viognier 2006 (white) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Mendoza, Argentina
WHY: Viognier is a singular style of wine that’s often accompanied by a singular price, so when a good, affordable example becomes available, it’s worth a special trip down to the old Liquor Monopoly Board. Viniterra’s all sweet florals and peachiness but delivers high drinkability with lively, corrective acidity.
PRICE: 750 ml/$12.95
AVAILABILITY: At most Vintages outlets as of June 21 (product #57919)
