Growing conditions:
Another drought year with our total rainfall reaching only 50% of normal. The moderate crop coupled with an extreme warm spell in the last half of August led to a divided harvest, some in early September with the balance in late October & early November yielding an average harvest with excellent quality.

The grapes were hand harvested, then whole cluster pressed while still cool. Barrel fermented in 25% new and 75% seasoned French oak barrels. The wine was aged on its lees passively for 3 months.
This process produced a richer mouthfeel and allowed the wine to be bottled with minimal filtration.

Tasting notes:
Aromas of honeysuckle and ripe apricots are intertwined with elusive hints of almond blossom in the background. Rich, silky mouth feel from fermentation plus 5 months of passive lees contact in Hungarian oak barrels culminates with a long, rich finish.

Drink now!! This Viognier will continue to improve with proper cellaring for another 12-24 months, but why wait??

Food selection:
This Viognier will enhance soft ripe cheeses, spicy Asian cuisine as well as richer ocean selections such as scallops, oysters, and lobster.
