Seriously cut viognier. Some of the classic floral and peach character (probably more to come with a little age) but even more citrus, flint and saline minerality.

Vinography 3.5.23 -- "His Viognier continues to be one of the best renditions of the variety made in California in my opinion (crisp, lean, and not at all oily or flabby)..." 

2021 Kendric Vineyards Viognier, Petaluma Gap, Marin, California
Pale gold in the glass, this wine smells of white flowers, citrus peel and a hint of peach. In the mouth, bright and zingy peach pit, lemon peel, and unripe apricot flavors are positively crackling with excellent acidity. Crisp, bright, and oh-so-drinkable. Not your typical California Viognier. 13% alcohol. Score: between 8.5 and 9.

Winemaker Notes

This comes from a couple small patches of my pinot vineyard that I grafted over to viognier in 2011 and 2018. The resulting wine is pretty varietally correct, with viognier's flashy floral aromatics, but on the leaner, crisper end of the spectrum.
