Wine Review: This very light straw colored Viognier opens with a pleasant mild lime and honey like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and zesty. The flavor profile is a unique anise and lime blend. There was also a touch of apricot noted on the back palate. The finish is dry and quite tingly. The panel suggested pairing this wine with chicken alfredo or smoked Gouda cheese. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, aromas of honeysuckle and white peach hint at sweetness. However, this wine is dry on the palate with notes of ripe apricot, lemon-lime, melon and lychee. A lingering finish has a touch of minerality, a signature characteristic of our vineyard. A natural pairing would be Thai chicken, raw oysters, ahi tuna or Szechuan prawns.
