Darioush – Viognier 2017 – Napa Valley

The nose is fresh, juicy and offers a slight concentration as well as a slight gourmandise. It reveals notes of lychee, vine peach / brugnon and small notes quince associated with slight touches of kumquat as well as a very discreet hint of flowers / linden tree. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers unctuosity, a beautiful acidulous frame, juiciness, roundness, a very slight freshness (in the background) as well as a small tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, ripe quince and small notes of kumquat associated with slight touches of lychee, passion fruits as well as hints of peach, ripe orange, very discreet hints of vanilla (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of zest. Good length.
