Viognier is known for its complex and pronounced aromatics, and this wine is no exception. The aromas are incredibly floral, with notes of honeysuckle and jasmine, along with tropical notes of lychee, guava, passionfruit, and pineapple. Ripe white peaches, crenshaw melon, grapefruit, and lemon peel add further complexity. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ acidity and medium body. The pleasing richness of the wine softens the acidity, while the palate amplifies the aromatics of stone fruit – apricot and white peach, guava, passionfruit, and pineapple. The finish is complex and long-lasting, dominated by ripe apricots, white peaches, and honeysuckle.


Food Pairings: creamy curries like kormas, chicken salads with apricot/peach, dishes with coconut, ginger, and saffron, rich shellfish dishes (seared scallops, grilled lobster), roast pork/chicken, tagines with apricot, and filet mignon with citrus hollandaise sauce (a rare white wine/red meat pairing!)

Cheese Pairings: soft and creamy cheeses like triple cream, Brie, and semi-soft cheeses like Emmenthal, Gruyère and Comté
