2010 Shameless Hussy Viognier

A Christmas gift, the Shameless Hussy seemed like the appropriate bottle for a sunny, warm Mother’s Day dinner.

From Hard Row to Hoe, based in Chelan, with grapes from the Columbia Valley, this delicious white showcases all of the floral and stone fruit flavors for which Viognier is so well loved. Great with a light, lemony asparagus and chicken pasta dish.

Even better than my description is the gift wrapped brown paper bag, signed with Rudy’s hand written note: The wine was in jeopardy (long story) during the wine making process and went on to become our most decorated wine. Off dry to slightly sweet. Smooth and totally appropriate as an apertif.

Even more fun — the cork has it’s own story. It says “Rowboat Taxi Service. Serving Lucerne & Point Lovely est’d 1930. Hourly departures, friendly service. The background. First time I have seen a cork with a story!
