10 Christopher Creek Viognier ($29) ☺☺☺

When you are fed up with Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc is just not right for the food then pick up a bottle of Viognier, it fills the gap between the two. In this case the Christopher Creek has an initial nose of pears and apricots with a hint of peach. On the palate it shows the typical mineral style associated with the classic French viognier and has a reasonably long finish for a white wine. We drank it with spiced chicken and it held up well against the spice.
