RATINGS

91Wine Enthusiast

Fine acidity and some dusty tannins give structure...ripe with orange, tropical fruit and kiwi flavors and accented with toasty oak infuences, yet finishes dry and clean.

TYPE

White Wine, Viognier

This is a full-bodied white variety has plenty of natural aromatics such as peach and violets. It’s a low yielding fruit, so it is grown for its taste over its economics. Viognier is considered an ancient grape and an early favorite of the Roman emperors.
