Ripken 2009 Under the Sea Viognier
Soft and subtle butter notes with French Oak. Nothing that leaps out and grabs you. The acidity is mild making this quite the easy drinker. Pay attention wine newbies. This one is for you. Look for a sour patch on the finish. She’s a gentle one. Nice price point as well.

Winemaker Notes: “A wine treasure of bright straw color and lingering aromatic tropical nose with bold floral and fruity aromas. Tangerine blossoms, Hawaiian pineapple, orange-red apricots and sommerfield apples. Featuring two clones of Viognier that were slow fermented and barreled aged to extract a background of subtle french oak spice.”
