This is fragrant and very pretty with lime/tangerine orange peel citrus scents. On the palate it is soft and smooth, without the bitterness that viognier can show. Very nice effort, a bit light in the back end, but clean and very aromatic all the way through, with flavors of rose petals and orange peel. Delightful bottle, just 13.5% alcohol.
