The Viognier grapes were gently pressed to extract pure clean aromas and flavours and fermented in stainless steel. Limited production of 215 cases.

Serve lightly chilled at 12 to 14°C with pan-fried scallops; baked tilapia; Dungeness crab; lightly spiced pork tenderloin; crown roast of pork; poached salmon; roast chicken; turkey breast with garlic aioli on crusty rolls; mild curry dishes. The perfect sipping wine for casual conversation.
