Bonterra Viognier 2007

I’ve held my tongue with remarkable virtue on the subject of Man City this season.  Although I never favoured Mark Hughes’ appointment, neither do I support chopping and changing every five minutes.  So I have been inclined to give him more time.  After tonight’s abject 3-0 defeat at Spurs, I admit my patience is being stretched like a City banker’s tax return.

More time is something I ought to devote to US wines, largely ignored on this site – only 14 of Big Sam’s offerings ever receiving the courtesy of a mention.  So here is a little redress.

Good Heavens!  Well more Good Earth actually...

Bonterra Viognier was one of the better wines I sampled at a recent California promotional tasting.  Gooseberry, apricot and a touch of Caramac – it’s smooth yet lively and fresh with just a hint of cheek.  A bit like me.

It is available at Ocado and at time of writing you can get £2.50 off the normal price of £9.99 if you buy two bottles.

    Hi Alistair,

    You’re another of those charmed by the Bonterra. I feel the whites left something to be desired rather than this wine was very good. I agree with your Caramac note though, thinking back.

    By (the only other Brit at that tasting) Wine90!
