Loads of stone fruit, right to the point maybe off-dry? Full bodied but with great acidic lift and only 12.5% alc. Flavorful without being exhausting, refreshing without being racy or steely.

Textbook for me, with a great balance of fruit, purity, and mouthfeel. Way more wine than the price would suggest. Loved it!

Light and airy very well balanced. One of the better Viognier I've had.

Reads a lot like an Oregon Pinot Gris. Ripe tropical fruits and citrus, rich aromatics that would lead you to believe it's going to be slightly off dry. Low alcohol and a much more crunchy mouth than I'd expect. Really delicious and a nice departure from the traditional style.

Strong scent of green apple and just the right amount of sweetness. Loved it!
