Wine Review: This yellow colored Viognier opens with a mild peach bouquet with a hint of grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a very tasty pear with notes of mild green apple and hint of lemon meringue pie in the end. The finish is dry and very approachable. This is an extremely food friendly Viognier that would pair well with many dishes. I would pair it with spinach tortellini with an alfredo sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose is generous and expressive with citrus such as grapefruit and line evident alongside apricot stones, ginger, peach blossom and a subtle background of preserved lemons and honey. The palate is tightly structured and youthful with apricot, peach blossom, lime and orange peel initially present. Nutmeg and cinnamon linger with a long finish.
