Grapes are sourced from top vineyards such as Elerding and Milbrandt, and the wine is given 100% barrel fermentation. This is a rich, ripe, almost unctuous style of Viognier, and it is impossible to resist. Lush, creamy and loaded with tropical fruits, it fills the mouth with warm, round fruit, and sails into a lingering finish of bananas and cream.
