In our on-going series on wine from Idaho, today, the final day of June’s Idaho Wine Month, we’re featuring two wines from Koenig which Sue visited last summer. While Sue is typically a red wine gal, this is the second Viognier she bought on her trip there (see our notes about Williamson’s Viognier here). The 2014 Koenig late harvest riesling was sent as part of a case of twelve wines from 12 wineries.
