If I have to drink Viognier, maybe this one. The roussanne provides a depth and waxiness that offsets the ripe tropical aromatics and fruit and makes the whole thing ok. I can hold two thoughts in my head at the same time: A) This is a cool wine;
B) I don't really like it.

Fun to try.

If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain...there is no other way to say it other than you should have this in your white rotation whatever you are doing. Northern rhone white, including this very classic beauty, is always a good reminder that something very different, hedonic, and pleasureful is happening right now. And it doesn't need partners at the table. It just needs a glass. Acid, mineral, butter, a whiff of turkey, tropical fruits galore.

Richly textured with a bitter finish but has a nice floral mineral and almonds on nose.

Round and rich texture on the attack and waxy mid palate. Balanced by a zip of acidity on the finish. Pineapple, mango, orange zest, blossoms, stones, hint of phenols.
