Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is made using organic winemaking techniques, fermented with indigenous yeast and with very little intervention from the winemaker.

The aroma is intense white flowers—particularly honeysuckle and apricot nectar, with hints of freshly turned earth. This wine exhibits the typical Viognier texture—silky, rich and luscious with a lovely fresh finish. The palate is rich and long, with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Great drinking now, with careful cellaring, this wine will continue to show the generous Viognier flavors and textures for at least 2—3 years.
