Tasting Notes

True to its variety, this wine has delicate floral notes and aromas of peach, honeysuckle, and tropical fruits. Barrel aging creates a palate that is round, elegant, and complex, giving the wine additional hints of vanilla and toast. Enjoy with roasted chicken, asian dishes, poached seafood, and crabcakes,

Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA).

Vintage Notes:

Spectacular vintage with long dry growing season with slow ripening and great acidity balance.

Winemaker's Notes:

Viognier is hand-harvested and destemmed into tanks to undergo a 12 hour cold maceration. After 12 hours, the grapes are pressed and the juices cold-settled before fermenting at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation is nearly complete, one-third is put into 1 and 2 year-old French oak barrels. After nine months of aging on lees, the result is a wine that is aromatic and full-bodied.
