Swooping in to rescue your palate from the ordinary, this sleek, rich Viognier will excite the senses and tickle your fancy. Flirtatious green apple, honeysuckle and white peach aromas playfully engage with flavors of pear and melon. A medium to full-bodied white wine, with a balanced and sustaining finish.
An early bud break coupled with a long warm growing season provided for an early harvest in the Clarksburg and Lodi winegrowing regions. Yields were consistent with the previous vintage which produced concentrated, flavorful grape clusters. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel, resulting in a light and crisp Viognier with complex fruit up front.
This full bodied Viognier will stand up to rich dishes such as roasted chicken in a white lemon cream sauce, grilled striped bass with plums and potato mushroom papillotes, or crunchy shrimp cakes.
