#wine review WineWalkabourt 2012 PWR Viognier

Sometimes the things you hold special in a wine come together to give you just what you want. This weeks #ww or #weekly winner or #WednesdayWine gave exactly what we needed. The Peoples Wine Revolution Viognier 2012 is 100% Viognier from the Salem Ranch in Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. It has a lovey perfumed nose, with subtle notes of jasmine, apricot and sweet almond. This nicely balanced wine is medium-bodied with a medium long finish. A nice example of this versatile wine.
They harvested the grapes on September 27, 2012, at 25.6° Brix, pH 3.67 and 5.1 g/L titratable acidity. The grapes were gently pressed and the wine fermented slowly in a neutral vessel and they bottled 122 cases on February 18, 2013. 14.1% alcohol, pH 3.40 and 6.5 g/L titratable acidity.
This is a wine that is much more than the sum of it's parts as is typical of the PWR wines. It was paired this week night with chicken enchiladas and it was very complimentary. The perfect wine for the night.
Their motto is 'Ruling class wines at working class prices!' and this they deliver with their wines batting well above their price point. This one we rate at a 7 and ****.

Seek them out and find the ones you like and consume!

Happy Wine Adventures,

Kiwi & Koala
