rio-vista-viognierTwo years ago, owner/winemaker John Little won best of show in the North Central Washington Wine Awards for the 2013 vintage of this delicious white wine, and he’s proving that was no fluke. It’s an elegant wine with aromas of tropical fruit, honey and grapefruit, followed by flavors of pineapple and orange. The rich midpalate is backed by surprisingly bright acidity that leads to a lengthy finish. This is a delicious example of Viognier. This won gold and best of class at the 2016 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival wine competition.
