Intoxicating aromas of sweet honeysuckle and apricot. Full bodied with A velvety mouth feel. Abundant flavors of stone fruit and apricot with hints of baking spice rounded out with crisp tartness and a clean finish.
Winemaker Notes: AZ Viognier is incredibly aromatic and wonderfully bright. 2012 had bright sunny days and a dry harvest season. This vintage spent twelve hours on its skins bringing a notable mouth feel and deeper complexity. Aged in neutral oak for 18 months, Viognier’s acidity is tamed allowing for more intense flavors.
Pairings: Pad Thai noodles, Apricot glazed chicken or a worthy slice of Brillat-Savarin.
