Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Opens up with enticing aromas of exotic flowers, white peach and honeydew melon. Dry with a medium-full body and a lovely round, mouth-filling texture. Ripe and very tasty, with impressive balance and a persistent finish. This is a serious Viognier with character to spare. It’ll make a fine summer sipper. My note: Like this! Floral and mild spices without being polarizing. Rose petal and white flowers. Medium-bodied and zippy. Viognier food pairings: grilled chicken breast, pasta primavera.

Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Excellent price for a very nice day-to-day Viognier (gets an extra point for the price).. Medium body. Rose petals. Tropical fruits. Lime. Grapefruit peal. Slightly carbonated. Beautiful minty long-finish. What a great QPR wine. I'd buy 4-12 bottles for the remaining summer. Went perfectly well with chicken thighs with olive oil and a dry BBQ rub.
Heather Proctor reviewed this wine as follows:

We both liked it (unusual)! Very nice with grilled chicken breast with orange and pine nuts (Webers book). Also good on its own, for sipping.
Lee Newby, AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: 100% Viognier
Very good wine showing white peaches and ripe pears over honey suckle and a touch of sweet herbs. The medium plus fruit concentration leads to a medium plus finish. The wine has medium acidity and good complexity. Drink now and for 1-2 years.
