2017 Viognier

Intelligently picked and wild fermented in a concrete tank, this is a sharp, tight expression of a grape that is too often overblown. The aromatics are honeysuckle, sweetness and creaminess: think brie with honey. Again, honey on the palate, with racy acid and a definite mineral streak, slightly saline. Green apple, candied pineapple and a slight, mentholated mint character.
