Don't let the labeled ABV scare you off as this is nicely balanced and in a great spot now and probably for a few more years.

Still a little tight at this point I think there's upside potential here.

Ripe Asian pear, orange blossom, tangerine juice, pineapple juice, toast, candied ginger, white flowers, powdered sugar, marzipan. Sexy and complex and just keeps evolving in glass.

Started out with honeysuckle and nectar notes and evolved over the hour into lemongrass, with an apricot brûlée finish. A treat!

13' Alban Viognier. Drink this right below room temperature. Let it open up in your glass for 30 minutes.
