Not to be confused with traditional French Aligote - smooth wooded and round but focused still.

Aligoté. Fun nose. Really interesting blood orange flavors develop over time that stay with you into the finish. Fat & acid in great balance.

Started out tasting like burnt firewood then transformed into a lighter, crisp, and more elegant bottle. Would like to try once the weather gets better for growing.

Tasty. Well balanced with fruity finish and light minerality compared to most Viogniers. Could drink at summer bbq

Not as crisp as I would have liked, but still goes well with Dungeness crab.
