Dirty Flowers

Buttery-rich and thick in the nose, teensy Windex and petrol agitate the plumpness in marvelous ways. An almost nutty fragrance, combined with grapefruit minerality and a high apple note.

In the mouth, plush gold liquid trickles smoothly all over. At once decadent, cram-packed with nectar and supple roundness–at the same time bristling with tang and tight, fresh, slightly under-ripe fruit. The ability to balance the pure luxury of Viognier extravagance with dirty spirit and prodding acidity is the world-wide GOAL of this variety.

This one does it.
