What to drink when Friday came and we had a roasted arctic char for dinner?  When going through the list of wines in the wine cabinet, K Vintners Art Den Hoed Viognier 2014 came across.  This bottle was bought from Alko´s special selection few weeks earlier for price of 33€. The wine comes from Yakima Valley which is part of Columbia Valley, Washington state. K Vintners wines have always been brilliant and never let me down. This wasn´t an exception.

With fatty roasted arctic char, this was a perfect match.

Needed to go right away to check storage status in Alko and there were three bottles left and managed to get one to replace this drinked one. Lets try this wine next time after couple of years.
