Slightly oily and nutty on the nose, but mostly you get orange peel and citrus blossom. The palate is round, full-bodied and pithy, with dry, nearly oxidized flavors of peach, walnut and melon. Finishes just fresh enough, but without any of the haunting, exotic flavors that characterize Old World Viognier.
