Tasting Notes: The 2009 Viognier exhibits classic varietal aromas of honeysuckle intertwined with tangerine, nectarine, and jasmine to create a very expressive impression. The palate echoes the nectarine flavor and has mid-palate concentration and weight. The wine finishes clean and correct, with ample fruitfulness and acidity. This aromatic wine is perfect as an aperitif or can be enjoyed on a warm summer day. Serve well chilled.
