Winemaker's Notes

Bright straw with green tinges, the 2008 Y Series Viognier has aromas that typify this exotic variety, namely jasmine, white peach and honeysuckle. These aromas are mirrored in the palate that displays richness and texture from wild fermentation and lees aging. With a clean, persistent finish, complemented by some exotic spices, this wine will reward if served with five spice chicken.

Critical Acclaim

"Vibrant hue; exotic bouquet of apricot kernel, cinnamon and some white pepper; generous and thickly textured with good persistence and freshness on the finish; a terrific example of this variety, and very well priced. Enjoy the full flush of youth."
