Nick-named “Clementine”, this late harvest Viognier was a first for Becker Vineyards. They are one of the first vineyards in Texas to plant and produce this varietal.  This wine vintage contains flavors of peach and some hints of nectarine. The color is a beautiful buttery rich color, and the wine is silky smooth, and rich with soft buttery notes reminiscent of a nice chardonnay or rousanne. It is sweet, but not too sweet to be paired with a suitable entre. This white wine varietal cellared fairly well over the years. As far as the Clementine name, there is a story to that. But you’ll just have to visit Becker Vineyards to find out more.
