TASTING NOTES

With bright, tropical fruit backing its luxurious fragrance, this is truly a quintessential Viognier. The nose is saturated with bold notes of lemongrass, Tahitian vanilla, & marzipan, while more delicate notes of juniper & chamomile add complexity. The palate strikes an intriguing balance between its rich texture & bright acidity that seamlessly weave in & out from the second it hits the tongue to the lingering finish. Mango, orange creamsicle, apricot, & coconut intertwine on the palate, with a splash of pomelo & white pepper on the finish. This wine is an intoxicating matrix of delightful minerality from beginning to end with a refreshing vein of acidity that lingers on the palate. Drinks beautifully by itself but will also pair with a wide range of cheese, seafood dishes, sushi, & savory poultry dishes.
