Another nicely made Viognier for this up-and-coming winery, the third in a row. Vivid acids define lemon drop fruit flavors. It's a clean, juicy style, with lip-smacking tartness and excellent focus in the midpalate. The finish is long and concentrated, with immaculately pure tasting fruit, and no alcoholic heat or excessive bitterness.
