Tasting Notes:

2013 was a very warm year with not a drop of rain during the ripening period. This Viognier exhibits rich crème brûlée and orange blossom characteristics on the nose and palate with a real spicy undertone. It is long, full and juicy with great texture.

Food match:

Cured meats and gruyere cheese. Pork belly.
