Alban Vineyards is a wine estate in Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo County, California. Winemaker John Alban is credited with being one of the first Californians to plant the Rhone varietals Viognier, Rousanne, and Syrah in 1989. His successful pioneering efforts led the way for the California Rhone Ranger movement and have since been a significant source for these varietals for other winemakers and his own Alban Vineyards label. He sources Mourvedre and Grenache from Paso Robles where hotter conditions are more conducive to growing those grapes. Apart from white and red single varietal releases and blends, Alban also produces a dessert wine with botrytis grapes called Rotten Luck. Read less

Aromas of honeyes peach and apricot with lychee and florals and a hint of fresh greens. Good acidity and medium bodied on the palate. Really nice minerality. Crisp flavors of stone fruits, lychee and a hint of mango. Nice and fresh with a melon tone on the finish. 3/24/12

This 2009 Viognier is very fresh and clean, with loads of honeyed peach and apricot as well as some exotic lychee and floral notes. The wine has good acidity and medium to full body, with more minerality than most California Viogniers.
