This 100% Viognier is harvested at full maturity around mid September and is pressed with a pneumatic press. The juice goes directly inside wooden barrels for vinification, during 6 months. When the wine is finished, it is clarified before bottling.
As with most Viognier the bouquet is extremely expressive and this wine shows vibrant floral notes, peach, honeysuckle, orange marmalade, and papaya. On the palate the wine is round and viscous in texture and expresses flavors of orange marmalade, honey suckle, and tropical citrus notes. On the finish there is a buttered toast element and some very nice baked apple pie notes. The only thing I would criticize would be the quite overt alcohol that reveals itself on the finish. 86 points
