Golden straw in color, our 2011 Viognier is bright and focused with aromas of Bosc pear, white peach, pineapple sage and white pepper. Lurid flavors of wildflower honey, tart nectarine, lime zest, pineapple and mango all come together nicely on the palate. This wine is well-balanced with a racy and lean mid-palate. It’s clean, crisp and refreshing showing lots of ripe tropical fruit flavors with a nice burst of acidity through the finish.
