Becker Vineyards' Viognier is once again an exquisitely delightful wine. 

Pairing Viognier from three Texas High Plains growers allows the terroir of each individual vineyard to meld, yielding this voluptuous wine. A touch of Roussanne adds an additional layer of complexity and elegance. Using only French oak barrels for aging brings forth a lush, creamy mouthfeel and warm vanilla. This quickly opens up to reveal a burst of refined citrus and golden apples, with lingering guava and a soft orange cream sickle-like finish. 

Aromatics: Peach blossom, ripe lychee, apricot pie

On the Palate: Creamy vanilla, lush mouthfeel, heady honeysuckle, tropical fruits 

Enjoy now, age 5 years

No decant necessary

 Serve 55-63ºF

Crisp, not too heavy wine. Good for a crowd or to share with a friend.

My wife and I think that this is a perfect wine for an indoor cheese and fruit carpet picnic when the temperature is too hot outside.

I've been a fan of Viognier for years. Most American's don't know much about it, but it's especially good for me in the summer. This is an excellent wine, it's crisp and fruity and just very drinkable. I like it for an evening aperitif / hors d’oeuvres or with chicken dishes.

We stopped by Becker on a whim while visiting Fredericksburg. We're very glad we did - such a strong portfolio for a wine region we scarcely knew existed! This Viogner is truly a standout - packed with flavor and just enough acid to make it an excellent choice for seafood or lighter fare. It's delicious and I bought some more online. Bravo Becker!
