smasne-cellars-logo-whiteBest Buy! It’s not common to find a dynamic Viognier at such a price point, but Robert Smasne prices many of his white wines in this range. Tropical fruit aromas are joined by ginger, citrus, creek stone and Lily of the Valley blossom. It shows typicity on the palate with orange Creamsicle flavors, but there’s noteworthy lemony acidity from beginning to end. In the middle is a hint of lanolin along with starfruit.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 221 cases

Alcohol: 13.5%
