Winemaker's Notes

Golden yellow color bright and clear. On the nose, the wine is marked with freshness by very distinct aromas of Viognier. Aromas of white flowers, apricot, acacia and white peach. Fruity wine with a lot of fat and wealth. This is a full wine combining elegance, power and balance.

Blend: 65% Viognier and 15% Roussanne, with Marsanne and tiny bits of Clairette and Bourboulenc

Critical Acclaim

"Pale yellow. Fresh peach and white flowers on the spice-accented nose; really showing its viognier component today. Fleshy orchard and pit fruit flavors are firmed by a tangy orange zest quality picking up a smoky quality with air. Closes on a lively, stony note, with good energy and lingering floral and ginger notes. "
