This may be one of the most austere Viogniers I've ever found from Washington; it's bone dry and just a bit over 13% alcohol. That makes it a good and versatile wine for mealtime. It's light, hints at beeswax and citrus, with a soft mouthfeel and a curious mix of toasted almond, banana andbutter cookies in the finish.
