Tasting Notes / Comments:Medium gold with a nose of apricot, minerals and sweet oak with hints of sherry. The fruit is mixed with lots of spicy wood and wood tannins. The wine also shows a good amount of acidity through to the finish.
Virginia Wine Guide (2001 vintage)

The Viognier stunned us with its floral and intense apricot bouquet and rich, creamy yet fresh, balanced palate.
Wine Alive (2000 vintage)

Pale yellow in color, this wine has a pretty nose of honeysuckle and apricots. It’s medium to full bodied with pronounced peach flavors that are tempered by orange citrus. There are some tropical-fruit notes as well. This wine is nicely structured with good acidity and has a nice apricot and lemon-zest finish. “A lovely wine, with no bitterness,” commented one taster.
TableWine (2000 vintage)

Pale lemon in colour
Delicate, thin nose
Slightly effervescent on the tongue
Light citrus……. lemon to the taste, mild rubbery edge
'Enjoying Viognier' (1999 vintage)

Fragrant aromas and flavours of peaches, apricots and hints of tropical fruits intermingle with subtle vanilla and cedar. The natural viscosity of the variety is evident, creating richness on the palate with complex stonefruit flavours that linger. (1998 vintage)
