Winemaker Notes

Immediately you are drawn to the ripe nose, reminiscent of peaches and orange zest. Classic, pure and refined, this Viognier is true to our house style. A full, and rich mouthfeel gives this bone-dry wine a sense of sweetness. The moderate alcohol and medium acidity create a harmonious structure. While complex and enjoyable now, a short cellar time will reward the connoisseur.
