TASTING NOTES

Highly aromatic, this classic Viognier is lengthy, pure, and vibrant. Aromas of yellow peach, tangerine, honeysuckle, and supple notes of apricot and rose. A dry, crisp, and vibrant entry of stonefruit, chamomile, and vanilla flavors with a touch of citrus and toasted almond on the finish. Delightful minerality 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!

My mom and I drove up one Friday to get the Figgy Piggy and bought a bottle of the Viognier (first time seeing your tasting room, and what a beautiful place you have), can't wait to come and enjoy the place when the restrictions are lifted, anyway, we went back to her place (drove up from Citrus Heights) and sat out on her patio and finished the whole bottle...guess you could say we loved it! 👍☺
