Apple, candied lemon peel, vanilla, orange blossom, limestone, peach and hints of dried apricot. Great acidity and balance.

Clear medium lemon. Pronounced nose with rich apricot, peach, orange zest, blossoms. Dry, full body, medium + acid, tastes of tangerine pulp, apricots, white pepper and honey. Finish was a bit short but quite nice. Not much evolution after 4 years in bottle but still quite drinkable.

Normally I'm not a Viognier person but the perfumes in this are understated and I taste more nectarines and white flowers. And maybe honeysuckle. It's got a nice filler body for a white without getting too much on the waxy side. Quite pleasant if not too complex for a Sunday evening

Wow. What a great example of a Viognier which we originally were introduced to in Virginia. What used to be a blending grape now holds up perfectly well by it's elf. It has the structure comparable to a Chardonnay but a flavor very unique to the grape itself. Scents of buttercup and light floral scents. Taste on the palate is a hearty mouth feel with a hint of Asian pear, subtle touch of lemon and buttery notes. It s so hard to describe as it has the unique taste of the wonderful Viognier grape. A must try. Available through wine.com.

Not the best viognier but enjoyable. Love the aroma than its flavor. Very floral. They definitely got at least the aroma right.

Awesome viognier. High acid, but full of honey and perfume. Really crisp.
