TASTING NOTES

Highly aromatic, this classic Viognier is lengthy, pure and vibrant. Aromas of peach, tangerine, honeysuckle, and supple notes of apricot and rose. A dry, crisp, and vibrant entry of stonefruit, chamomile and honeysuckle flavors with a touch of citrus and toasted almond on the finish. Delightful mineratlity from beginning to end with acidity that is refreshing and lingers on the palate. A delicious sipper as well as perfect for an array of pairings!
