IO Nielson Vineyards Viognier 2007                            

The 2007 Viognier from the Nielson Vineyard located in Santa Maria Valley is a classic example of this floral variety from the northern Rhone. Filled with aromas of honey, stone fruit and lychee. Intense peach, citrus, honeysuckle flavors and an unctuous texture framed by underlying acidity, the wine delivers.
