Tasted double-blind. The nose showed white flowers; sort of a mix of magnolia, jasmine and citrus blossom. The palate came across off-dry with some potential residual sugar. Pastilles and honeysuckle. I thought this was well balanced and seemed to have higher acid. My call was a Chenin Blanc; a Vouvray, demi-sec from a recent vintage. Obviously, I was way off. I’m told the relatively higher ABV in these wines, plus the fact that they are made in stainless steel, give the perception of higher acid. Anyway, it’s nice to drink Viognier that tastes like this. Now I wish I had a dozen oysters!

I love I hope I pray to try 20 more of these in my life. Textbook amazing. Fresh peaches, mango, passion fruit, beautiful cantaloupe... the minerality is like a truck. Slow and steady on the palate. There is subtle neutral oak and this thin layer of malo on it. Poached honied pears and white flowers that feel like it's someone's wedding day on the nose. Youthful and amazing vintage in all rhone/burgundy. I opened this way too early but it feels like childhood in a bottle. Sold.
