Sauvignon Blanc
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Tasting Notes: With aromas of fresh peach, Asian pear, apricot and floral honey. The palate has refreshing flavours of mandarin, lemon, Royal Gala apple, and honey. With a crisp acidity leading to a clean bright finish.

Food Pairing: Fresh seafood dishes are the perfect pairing for this wine; seared scallops, grilled shrimp, lobster mac & cheese, fresh oysters and white wine and garlic mussels. You can also enjoy the Viognier alongside fresh summer salads, roast chicken, and pork tenderloin.

Winemakers Notes: The 2022 vintage was warm and dry with ideal harvest conditions. Crop size was lower than average, but the grapes were of excellent quality, showing outstanding concentration and ripeness. The resulting wine is showing well young, while also expressing qualities that are very promising for their longevity.
