Light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: A nice Viognier that reminds me more of the Argentine Torrontes. This wine features peach, nectarine, tangerine peel, lemon, grapefruit, limestone and a touch of rosemary. Medium body with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Drink now or over the next 3 years, on its own or pair it with deviled eggs.
