Full-bodied with notes of peach and grass -- a perfect summer wine.

A nice smooth somewhat creamy Viognier featuring lemon, orange zest, apricot, peach, white pepper and limestone. Medium body with good acidity and a good length.

Negatives: A touch sour on the finish.

Drink now on its own or pair it with scallops.

Tasted: 20 Sept 12

Tropical fruit aromas and palate. Weighty mid-palate with glycerine sweetness but very crisp (almost tart) finish. Good balance overall and there is enough depth to make this wine interesting in addition to just plain tasty.
