Bouquet:

This Viognier smells like summer! Abundant aromas of starfruit, honeydew melon, white peaches, and pears filled my nose as I sniffed and swirled this wine.

Palate:

The fruit for this wine comes from the Steelhead Run and Ox blocks of Mae’s Vineyard, owned by Quady North. Located in the Applegate Valley, Herb Quady has discovered a real sweet spot for growing Viognier! His vineyard site regularly producing fruit with good acidity and a full mouthfeel. Along with bright acidity and a round texture, I also tasted tart honeydew melon, pears, and sun-kissed apricots. The wine was zingy, full, and had a long, honeyed finish.
