Stags' Leap Napa Valley Viognier 2021
The 2021 Viognier is fragrant and alluring with signature varietally-classic stone fruit characters sitting alongside a delicate floral bouquet. Layers of fresh white peach, apricot, orange blossom, zesty lime and elderflower sit alongside secondary notes of marzipan, Madagascar vanilla and lemon curd. A racy backbone of crisp acidity is supported by an earthier stony minerality, adding layered notes of honey and lanolin, which soften to a rounded, creamy texture on the lengthy finish that is mouthwatering and supple. Silky and viscous with an exotic, spiced floral character, this is the perfect al fresco white, ideally suited to lighter fare, and an elegant companion for a variety of occasions.
