Amazingly sumptuous with aromas of banana and flowers. Sleek and bright on the palate with pronounced white stone fruit and banana accompanied by cantaloupe, kiwi, persimmon and spice; finishes with a clean minerality that is classic Viognier. This is a terrific food wine! Fish, fowl and cream based pasta dishes pair nicely.
The Helwig Estate Vineyard is maturing for sure. Increasingly able to produce grapes of outstanding character and this years Viognier is possibly the best yet, which is a bit humorous because we seem to say that every year. This is 100% Viognier and 100% stainless, no oak! The 2017 growing season was perfect and the resulting wine is refreshing, slightly crisp and full of varietal character!
