Lemon straw with green hues. The aroma is complex and funky. Lifted honeysuckle, lemon rind, apricot and peach aromas mix with hints of cashew and fresh pineapple. The palate is rich and textured - a luscious wine with layers of spice, citrus and apricot, showing the distinct Viognier varietal characters that persist through to the lovely fresh finish. Pair with red duck curry; pad Thai; or red lentil dhal with spinach.
Wine Spectator Succulent white peach and dried apricot flavors are elegant and distinctive, showing restraint and a wonderfully smooth, succulent body. Precise details of nutmeg and litsea essential oil linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. Score: 92, MaryAnn Worobiec
Aromas of honeysuckle, French pear, custard, apples and white pepper adorn the 2021 Organic Viognier. In the mouth, the wine is all the nose promises. However, it is shaped by bitter phenolics (akin to stale almonds). While this bitterness serves to balance the oily fruit, the primary effect is to dissuade a second sip. This is angular and hard work.
