This smoothly robust blend highlights the apricot, yellow peach, pear and honeysuckle notes of Viognier, underscoring them with the acidity and minerality and crisp apple, lime and stone fruit from Riesling, wrapping it all with the pineapple, mango and papaya aromas of Chardonnay. Fresh and balanced yet lush, it's complemented by hints of vanilla and a lingering finish of stone fruits.
Rich enough to verge on red wine pairings, this wine works well with heavy cream and mushroom sauces, rich seafood such as lobster or crab, or soft ripened cheeses like Brie.

It’s my new favorite
I am more of a Syrah, Red Zin drinker, but wanted to try a white wine (I like dry white blends). I been bulk aging for 4 months and it is sweeter than I care for. Not to the level of dessert wine, maybe like what white zin would taste like if it were good(?). For people who like sweeter wines, it is fine. For me, I wish it were drier... It is definitely a quality product, just not to my taste. Hopefully in a few months I will like it better.
I want to like this wine. We opened a bottle at 4 weeks, and I would definitely call it "off dry." Since we don't drink sweet wines, it was disappointing. I'm hoping that with more time in the bottle, it will be more dry, but we've not had this happen before. The color is lovely and it is very clear.
Usually drink red blends or cabs, this is a nice change, good aroma, fresh tasting, enjoyed very much.
Have just started the kit; really won't have a comment for 6 months or so!
