Divine Summer Wine: Alexandria Nicole Voignier

The best Voignier yet – Alexandria Nicole ’08!

Alexandria Nicole’s Voignier is nothing short of a divine summer wine. I tasted this with my sommelier friend at the winery and we were so impressed we each bought a bottle for later. Intense floral aromas, including jasmine, followed by wonderfully crisp, light and balanced fruit-forward flavors and ending with a hint of honeysuckle. Some may find it reminiscent to a Riesling, although not as sweet. If you ever see this bottle, give it a taste. I checked their website and the ’08 is sold out, so looks like we’ll have to wait until the next vintage for another taste (now I wish I bought 2 bottles…or more)!
