This reverses the blend of the Viognier; it's 85% Roussanne and 15% Viognier and finishes in a rather surprisingly sweet, off-dry style with 1.4% residual sugar. White peach and spicy pear fruit flavors are bright and fleshy, while the sweetness is offset by moderate acids. For those who prefer some sweetness in their white wines, this is an excellent choice.
