This refreshing Viognier offers aromas of white
peaches, vanilla, cashew, Maui Gold pineapple and
white flowers. Flavors of pineapple, stonefruit such as white peach, vanilla and butterscotch will be found on the palate. This wine has great balance with fresh acidity that leads to a zesty finish!
"A very fine Viognier, one of the best of the vintage, that takes the variety's exotic, sometimes over the top richness and controls it with crisp coastal acidity and a deft touch of minerals. Elegant and interesting, it displays utterly dry flavors of Meyer lemon, lime, fig, date, honeysuckle, vanilla, spice and flint flavors. Drink now for freshness."
You can't go wrong with Fess Parker. For someone who is partial to red over white, this selection was a big hit-abundance of fruity flavors, wonderful aroma and, as with all Fess Parker wines, very smooth.
