At first sip, this wine reminds me of Christine Andrews Viognier, which is a favorite of mine, though I haven't had it in years. This wine is 65% Chardonnany, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Viognier. And I can tell you, that small amount swings the whole taste in this wine.

What I taste is a little bit of green apple but also a nice undercurrent of passionfruit. The heft of this wine is nice, with a weight silkiness on your tongue. The color is a pale yellow and the viognier component gives it a very floral aroma.

Now, I will tell you that it was the label that captured my attention and then the back won over when I saw the ingredients. This wine is worthy of a try.
