gard-vintners-freja-2012-bottleBest Buy! Approachable and delicate begins to describe this estate Rhône-style blend of clone 1 Viognier (80%) with Tablas Creek clone Roussanne from this Frenchman Hills site. Perfumy aromas of orange Creamsicle, pink grapefruit, elderflower and cotton candy transition to flavors of yellow grapefruit, melon and honeycomb. A pleasant sheen of lanolin appears on the midpalate before a delivery of grapefruit pith and dusty minerality in the finish.
