Aromas of tropical fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of peach, apricot and honey with lively acidity balance. Ok mouthfeel, medium length, ending with refreshing fruit. Food friendly wine!

This is a creamy and full white, with orange blossom flavors and some residual sugar up front, yet with a touch of tartness to the finish. We paired it very successfully with mushroom gravy chicken over Israeli couscous and lemon arugula salad.

Dry for a Viognier, this energetic wine is full of apples, pears, and peaches, with a honey-tinged finish. It complemented steamed artichokes, Asada chicken, French bread with Brie, and roasted vegetables.

Crisp and refreshing, with a splash of butter, this Viognier is soft and dry with apricot and lemongrass flavors. We paired it with crispy skillet chicken with bulgur paella, zucchini, and apricots, and a side of pugliese and Brie. Nice food wine!

The nose is funky on this wine. The palate initially showed no fruit. With some time in the glass, notes of pear and peaches showed up.

The nose is fragrant with orange blossoms and honey. The orange blossoms and honey continue onto the palate with mouth-watering acidity in the finish. Great with salmon and shrimp in a lemon cream sauce.

Solid, but lacks a bit of body and acidity. Fantastic floral notes and a not-to-heavy creamy finish make it a nice warm evening wine.
