james suckling hq logo plain"Brimming with peach and floral aromas, this is is ripe enough with crisp acidity for this grape variety. Good length, too. This should be good for at least a couple of years. Drink or hold. Screw cap."

iwinereview"This is a great value in Viognier. The Special Reserve has a ripe citrus note, but the palate has better typicity, revealing white stone fruit, apple, and minerals with a full, creamy texture. Very fresh and appealing. A part of the wine goes through a period of ageing in French oak for 3 months."

vinous logo"Pale yellow-gold. Fresh peach, tangerine and candied ginger on the fragrant nose; suggestions of dusty minerals and white flowers build in the glass. Silky and open-knit, offering juicy citrus and pit fruit flavors and a deeper honey nuance. A quinine note adds a refreshingly bitter quality to the nicely persistent finish, which shows good focus and cut. - Josh Raynolds"
