Stark's Viognier is liltingly ripe, enveloped by lemon and kumquat and a circle of spice. Light and crisp upon opening it develops a depth of textures and layered flavors over time and is very pretty, retaining plenty of acidity amidst its alcohol and neutral oak. Pair it with Thai food or creamy lobster rolls.
