TASTING NOTE: A blend of 70% Riesling and 30% Viognier, each harvested and fermented separately in stainless steel. Balanced and crisp with vibrant apple, lime, peach and mineral, with a honey-citrus undertone and a lovely texture, thanks to the Viognier. Ripe, juicy and refreshing. Just great, especially chilled as a sipper or paired with grilled seafood or pork loin. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2017) Price $ 15.95
