What the wine press has to say:
“Fragrantly floral in jasmine and beeswax, this vineyard-designated Viognier offers apricot, peach and honeydew melon around a robust, full-bodied figure. Ripe and fleshy, it remains sturdy through the long finish, tinged with Tahitian vanilla.” - 90 points - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2015
Light pale gold, with perfect clarity from core to glinting edge.
White peach, lemon, fresh honeysuckle, mixed melon, straw, and lemongrass.
Meyer lemon, apricot, white peach, honeydew melon, Granny Smith apple, white spice, subtle anise and lemongrass.
Super long, with fruit flavors that yield to piquant spice and minerally lemongrass flavors. Gradually drying, then mouthwatering as medium tannin adds some drying and gripiness.
Enjoy this delicious, fragrant wine with fresh fruits and cheeses, roast chicken or just about any spicy Asian cuisine.
