Estate Viognier Verna's 2013

External Review:

Bright gold hue and significant green tones. The aromatics are intense providing ample amounts of Geranium blossom on top of waves of lychee and a background of pine forest within a framework of briny minerality. The complexity of the minerality continues on the palate followed by unctuous sweet tropical fruit and floral notes. The full body really coats the mouth and provides a lengthy finish of seashell which moderates the sweetness. This needs food and is a strong contender for your holiday meals of roast turkey stuffing sweet potato casserole and cranberry sauce. Chris Greene.

Brilliant, deep straw color with a very floral nose. Notes of honeysuckle, fresh cut grass, cotton candy and tangerine. On the palate quite viscous and rich but is balanced nicely with vibrant acidity. This wine has a pleasant mineral laden finish... John Sweeney.
