100% Viognier

Muddled Meyer lemon, dusty white peach, honeysuckle, and Pate Brisée introduce this aromatic white wine. The unctuous mid-palate is generously filled with flavors of orange marmalade and Persian lime, balanced by a precise and lively acidity that provides remarkable freshness. Vinous: 92
