Sean Boyd really knows how to capture the acidity in this blend. More melon, Honeysuckle, and lemon notes than last year, but still an underlying mineral note. Persistent, lip-smacking finish.

Consistent with last notes, but perhaps slightly more harmonious.

Two years in a row I’ve really enjoyed this blend. The nose shows fresh daisies, stone fruits, citrus oil, and pears. This vintage is juicy! Stone fruit and lychee ride along enough acidity to add a mouth watering finish to each sip.

This is my favorite vintage of Sean Boyd’s Southern White Rhône blend. I find this to be a luscious stunner that balances its Rhônely parts well.

White Flowers, citrus oil, and a dash of nutmeg on the nose. Lychee, white peach and hibiscus flavors. Not complex, but so very well made by Sean Boyd.

Damn. This wine is nice. The nose is absolutely fresh cut Pineapple and nice floral notes in the background. The palate is extremely fresh and quenching. Grab one or a few.

Just on the edge of overripe. Viognier just falls into that narrow balance of the correct ripeness. Good weight, low acid, funky overtones.

Mostly viognier. Light and refreshing, fruity, not very dry
