The Emperor Probus Elgin Viognier 2019
Deep bright gold - whiff of cream and clementine, peach and quince, with hints of vanilla and judicious oak maturation overtones. Tropical notes on the pallet also display white juicy fruits of lychee and apricot. Rich, concentrated, and with mouth-watering appeal, this full bodied yet soft wine will round out to become even longer and more lingering.
The 47th Roman Emperor Probus was responsible for introducing this cultivar to the Rhone in the year 281AD, where it eventually found its spiritual home of today, the Rhone Appellation of Condrieu. This wine pays homage to Marcus Aurelius Probus.
