We've found the perfect replacement…

F. Stephen Millier Black Label Viognier 2017

This Chenin wouldn't exist if you hadn't supported a talented young upstart winemaker

    • Pure, refreshing Chenin Blanc that tastes like you're chomping on some ripe tropical fruit and a juicy green apple – this is the whirlwind of fruit and zippiness that Alex always wanted to make.
    • As a fledgling winemaker at a fancy Napa winery, Alex never got to make her dream wine. She needed Angel-backing to be able to make this great white on her own.
    • It pays to have a Chenin with some serious bite sitting in the fridge. It's a clean white that pairs with almost everything and drinks great on its own, too, so you'll want to fill to the gills while it's in stock.
    • It's not just Angels who've dropped a few jaws over this Chenin – it was also a Silver medal winner at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition!
