The 2012 Viognier Reserve had a tough act to follow after its inaugural 2011 sister won Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. She has risen to the challenge as winner of Grand Gold at the Lyon International Wine Competition, the only U.S. winery to receive top honors! As with our inaugural version, this Viognier received hands-on treatment throughout and new French Oak for short cellaring. The nose on this vintage is a rich blend of honey, violet, and acacia with additional notes of cinnamon. On the palate, you can detect vanilla, toast, and butter and an excellent balanced finish.
