Calera 2013 Doux Viognier (Central Coast)

John Jensen sources these grapes from his neighbor Ken Gimelli's vineyard just a mile away from the Calera estate in San Benito County. In this tribute to eiswein, the grapes are picked at modest sugars then frozen before processing, resulting in aromas of honey, dried apricot and a reduction sauce of honeydew, tuberose and lemonade. There's just enough acidity and grip on the liquid honey palate. It's altogether quite delicious and never cloying. Matt Kettmann
