Perfect Viognier! Floral and lime blossom notes lead followed by a zippy lime zest. Medium-bodied and thoroughly delicious. Get out of your white wine rut with this one. I love when I wine gets better the more you try it. Wonderfully seductive aromas of peach and pink grapefruit on the finish. Yes please!  Finishes with aromas of white peach and floral notes. Pretty!

Viognier food pairings: chicken, cloved ham, lobster, sushi, grilled seafood, pork.

Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Vinified in natural French oak with the fruit from the cool climate, southern part of Napa Valley comes this elegant Viognier. Aromatic and delicate floral nose, ripe stone fruit on the palate with subtle tropical notes and a touch of minerality. Refreshing acidity, rich mouthfeel and great complexity imparted by lees aging. Perfect match to a succulent grilled lobster and slightly spicy dishes. Tasted April 2016/92 points. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Floral and citrus aromas with the palate offering grapefruit, white peach and mineral notes.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Aromas of honeydew melon, citrus and floral notes on the nose as the crisp entry introduces flavors of white peach, honeysuckle and slight grapefruit. Vibrant acidity leads to a full mouthfeel featuring kiwi and key lime notes that transition to a long finish featuring fruit to the end.

Les arômes de melon miel, d’agrumes et de fleurs et son entrée vive montrent le chemin aux saveurs de peches blanches, de chcvrefeuille et de pamplemousse. Son acidité vive mcne r une sensation charnue présentant des touches de kiwi et de lime

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
