While at an industry wine tasting last year ran by Southern Wine and Spirits (thanks to Greg Cohen on the invite), I came across a Viognier offering by Ironstone, the makers of the much ballyhooed Symphony that I love so much.

Upon tasting it, I was overcome with the most pleasant emotions that a wine could bring a person. Filled with a taste comprised of white peaches, honeysuckle, lychee, and even a hint of mango, this smooth operator slides down your tongue and tickles the back of your throat.

This year, while making an attempt to order a case, my wine store initially came up empty, finding out that Ironstone dropped their Viognier, and some chick, Christine Andrew, took it into their calender. Well, they did get me a case, and I ultimately found out that Christine Andrew is a sublabel of Ironstone.

This is a wine worth getting one case of, and it's also a ladykiller as well. I just can't wait to start exploring the rest of their catalog.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
