The 2018 Viognier shows intense ripe peach and nectarine aromas alongside floral notes and hints of exotic spices. The palate shows a textural creamy richness so typical of the variety, but the wine remains crisp due to its refreshing acidity. Ripe stone fruit and candied citrus peel shape the palate, while a warming spice note continues through the finish. The wines acidity and flavor intensity make it a great partner for a range of meals, such as summer salads, fish tacos, and poultry. Best consumed chilled while in its youth.
