This white is tank-fermented and aged, never spending time in oak. It has 10% Grenache Blanc and tastes viscous like honeycomb, dried apricot and baked lemon. Strong and structured, it retains balance, acidity and elegance. VIRGINIE BOONE

Golden yellow color. Floral aromas and flavors of white flowers, peach, ripe melon, baklava, and sultana with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long finish that presents overtones of apricot essence and grapefruit pith. A floral and outgoing white that will be lovely with grilled seafood and Spanish cuisine. (Silver Medal Awarded)
From the Winemakers' Website: "Our 2017 Viognier has a silky texture and rich fruit flavors of stone fruit and honey with a hint of preserved lemon and dried herbs. As usual, we blended in a small amount of Grenache Blanc for the acidity and structure this varietal provides as a balance to the richness of the Viognier".
