2012 Peay Vineyards Estate Viognier, Sonoma Coast

91Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar

Light yellow-gold. Smoky orchard and pit fruit aromas are lifted by suggestions of citrus pith and gingery spices. Sappy and floral on the palate, offering ripe pear and nectarine flavors plus a touch of bitter quinine. Firms up on the lingering spicy finish. In an uncompromisingly dry, racy style for the variety, showing the bite and cut to work with sashimi or even raw bivalves. This energetic viognier checks in at a very low 3.1 pH and it shows.
