Description

"...soft, succulent and inviting. Dried flowers, mint, apricot and almond notes grace this tasty open-knit white from Fess Parker. The 2017 shows the oiliness and exotic aromatics that are so typical of Viognier, but with good freshness and energy as well." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"The 2017 Viognier Rodney's Vineyard has a restrained nose, hinting at citrus pith, roasted almonds, beeswax, pastry crust and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, it has honeyed stone fruits with pretty floral accents, refreshing acidity and a textured finish." ~ Wine Advocate
