This beautiful Rhône-style white wine blend of Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Vermentino is a superb standout! Bright and luscious aromatics of ripe stone fruit, chamomile, honeysuckle, and gardenia grab your attention while hints of fresh lemon cucumber and white pepper lead you into your first sip! The palate is fresh, vivacious, and beautifully elegant with flavors of white peach, lychee, Asian pear, and Braeburn apple that is complemented by an array of lush tropical fruits and floral notes that add to the multi-layered complexity. With a well-rounded mouthfeel and amazing balance, the long lingering finish has notes of fresh Summer berries and a vibrant swathe of acidity to finish. This is an ideal food wine or it can be simply paired with a patio and a sunset.
