Pauba Road Vineyard, Temecula Valley
Light straw to slightly yellow in color. The aroma absolutely screams Viognier with its expressive nose of white flowers, apricots, peaches and ginger. On the palate, this wine juxtaposes sweet, mouthwatering fruitiness with a crisp, acidic backbone that keeps it fresh and lively. Additional stone fruit character comes through in flavors of white peach, apricot and nectarine.
The wine finishes clean and long and with an exotic floral character. It should be enjoyed with equally exotic foods such as Indian chicken korma, Thai curries or spicy Greek dishes.
