Bioletti’s Block Viogner 2018

First let’s start with the fact that I loved this wine. It had that fruit/floral mix that I enjoy. To me it tasted of melon and heady flowers. Though the description says it is melon and honey (yep I think of honey as floral) plus the ubiquitous Apricot. I’m working on recognising this flavour, it’s very frustrating that I don’t because I would of thought it was an obvious flavour. However it seems my brain interprets apricot as flowers.

Basically, with this wine, your talking bursting with sweet fruit flavours in a dry refreshing wine with good acidity and a nice finish. Yummy 😋 we went for more.

OK now for the frustrating part: I can’t work out who makes this wine. When I like a wine I always look up the winery so I can try more of their produce, in this case the wine is distributed by Kingslands Drinks based in Manchester, but there is no mention of it on their website. The only California based winery they distribute is McManis, who are based in the California Central Valley near Lodi where this wine comes from. So I can only assume it is theirs, but can’t be sure as it is not mentioned on their website either. I did a search of all the other wineries based in the Central California Valley and still came up with no hits. So your guess is as good as mine folks.
