Gard Vintners: Woodinville, Viognier

Pale straw in color, with an explosive nose of spring flowers and citrus, combined with a light toastiness. Swirling makes the nose leap from the glass, allowing you to smell it without having to put your nose in it. With some air it begins to show more stone fruit like peach and apricot with a little more weight. The palate is bright and polished revealing lacings of minerals and seamless transitions. Even a hint of citrus rind on the palate adds intrigue. Fun to drink now but will age gracefully for the next 2-4 years.
