Starmaker Viognier 2012

Top critic Robert Parker described one of Reed Renaudin’s reds as a “hedonistic turn-on to drink.” We think you’ll encounter the same with this sexy new Viognier.

2012 is “one of the best vintages California has seen for decades” (, and Starmaker really shows off the vintage’s trademark ripeness. Reed sourced the fruit from a special 15-acre vineyard along the Russian River, and hand harvested the grapes in the early morning for maximum freshness. From there, no quality detail was spared in the cellar. You’re in for a cool, aromatic mix of honeysuckle, apricot, melon, orange marmalade and more.

'Starmaker' is what Reed called this when he first tasted his final product. The name makes sense. With its lightly creamy, pleasing texture – courtesy of barrel fermentation and fine French and American oak aging – plus enticing aromatics, this is the perfect partner for roast white meats, creamy pastas and more.
