This wine is redolent of fresh pear, apple, apricot, star fruit and honey. The rich creaminess creates a mouthfeel that frames the entire lengthy finish.

Excellent, Wine Press Northwest
"It can be difficult to find a Viognier to pair with food, but here’s a candidate. Subdued aromas of Golden Delicious apple, orange and fresh pineapple are followed by candy corn and butterscotch. The entry to the palate is filled with yellow grapefruit and popcorn, backed by lovely minerality and Rangpur lime tartness to clean the palate. Enjoy this with scallops served alongside an orange sauce."
Value Pick, Oregon Wine Press
"Sweet fruit bursts with notes of orange and apple dipped in caramel. A hint of minerality adds to this well balanced beauty whose rich, round flavors persist throughout."
