Wine Review: This light pale yellow colored Viognier opens with a heavenly and attractive floral and lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, well balanced, soft, and elegant. On the palate, the flavor profile is a lightly mineral infused green apple with hints of almond and pear. The finish is dry and a bit subtle. Pair this wine with trout almandine. This is a tasting room only wine, you will have to order it direct from the winery. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We picked the Viognier at the height of ripeness, capturing its beautiful aromatics while preserving the acidity in the grapes. The wine exudes a bouquet of jasmine, crushed rock and freshly peeled tangerine intertwined with honey, pastry cream, and orange blossom. The bright acidity is a result of partial malolactic fermentation and seamlessly balances the sweet fruit characteristics.
