"(barrel-fermented): Full yellow with a gold tinge. Full-blown scents of fresh apricot, almond and honeysuckle, with a building note of orange blossom. Fat, broad and slightly sweet but with a firm citrussy edge giving decent shape to the middle palate and back end. Ultimately less sweet than the nose suggests, with the almond note repeating on the slightly edgy finish. A distinctly exotic fruit bomb of a Viognier with obvious barrel fermentation character. - Stephen Tanzer"
