Westerly Côte Blonde is a compelling, very expressive wine that is just beginning to reveal what it will ultimately deliver. The Viognier adds a subtle white flower component to the exotic aromatics, while the palate is soft, juicy, and pure Syrah in nature. Dark fruits shine through, with a touch of licorice and spice rounding out the bright and balanced mouthfeel. Forward and precocious now, the wine will continue to unfold and develop over the next 10 years.
