41% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 19% Picpoul Blanc

Contrarian 41% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, 19% Picpoul Blanc The rich round aromatics and flavors of Viognier dominate this blend, while the Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc ensure a smooth transition to a crisp clean finish. Jasmine and honeysuckle jump out as soon as the bottle is opened, with hints of lemon meringue pie following as you dive into the glass. The wine has a creamy round mouthfeel, with peach and thyme joining the aromatic notes. Then the finish tightens up the flavors with a bright conclusion and a lingering note of pineapple and rosewater. A very ageworthy white, it can be enjoyed immediately or aged through 2028 for more nutty flavors and a softer mouthfeel.
