2022 Viognier – Big and aromatic, it represents well the hot and dry 2019 vintage. Perfect with roasted chicken with apricots and almonds and spicy exotic foods. Works well with a wide variety of shellfish and seafood....roasted or grilled chicken, veal, pork, root vegetables and both creamy and fruity hard cheeses.
Nose: Very aromatic, fresh, and sweet. Floral notes of almond blossoms accompany a rich bouquet of ripe peach, Mirabelle plum, apricot, pineapple, and grilled almonds.
Palate: Fresh and zippy up front with juicy tangerine followed by apricot, peach, and baked citrus with light notes of grapefruit and exotic fruit. Finishes mineral, spicy and very long. Delicious.
