William Church Winery 2014 Viognier, Columbia Valley, $25
The Balsleys continue their award-winning tradition in Woodinville, Wash., with this white grape from the Rhone Valley, and it starts with their relationships with Columbia Basin vineyards Conner Lee and Gamache. Enticing aromas of orange blossom, banana taffy, pineapple and orange oil lead to a delicious entry of white peach, Gala apple and Asian pear. Its clean and bright structure achieves balance from both citrus pith and acidity.
