“Ah, Viognier. Pronounced vee-on-yay, this grape is bursting with aromatics and flavor. Full in body, this wine completely coats your palate offering flavors of honeysuckle, apricot, and ripened pear to name a few. Substantial acid brings your palate the cleanliness and uplift it needs after a sip of this weighty drop, and the long, beautiful finish leaves you wanting another. Very well-balanced.” —Sam
