Wine Review: This medium golden yellow colored Viognier opens with a mild rose and gentle vanilla bouquet with hints of apricot, gooseberry and lychee. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well-balanced, soft and creamy. The flavor profile is mild mineral, lemon verbena and vanilla crème soda blend with hints of peach, tangerine and lychee. The finish is dry, elegant and refreshing. The Panel would pair this Viognier with a baked citrus orange roughy. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: To accentuate its more delicate aromas, this cool-climate Viognier was fermented entirely in concrete, resulting in fragrances of apricot, summer hay, honeysuckle, Meyer lemon and Mandarin orange. The first sip is supple and viscous, and as it unfurls a current of bright acid emerges, framing the flavors and driving the wine to a tantalizing peaches and cream finish.
