2017 Viognier

2017 Viognier
2017 Viognier

100% Viognier - 75% Lonesome Springs Vineyard and 25% Dineen Vineyard. Viognier's home is Condrieu, a tiny region of the Rhone Valley of France.  The vine was nearly forgoten by the 1980's, but a renewed interest in Rhone wines brought Viognier back into focus and many consumers have discovered its haunting aromas and rich texture. The 2017 Viognier is a great example of a restrained and balanced Viognier that is a pleasure to drink.

Tasting notes

Limpid with a yellow green hue, with aromas of peaches, lemongrass, apricots, barrel spice, and a hint of floral perfume.  The Viognier is crisp and has a pleasing lightness, yet is full bodied.  The acidity is prevalent and balances the stone fruit flavors, and the Viognier finishes with a crispness and freshness we desire.  This is a great example of a restrained and balanced Viognier that is a pleasure to drink.

Production notes

All the Viognier grapes were pressed whole cluster and fermented in 7 used French Oak barrels and 1 used Acacia barrel.  We stopped the malo-lactic fermentation by moving the Viognier barrels outside during the winter.  To minimize oxygen pickup in the Viognier, we did not rack or barrel stir.  The Viognier simply rested in the barrels until bottling in May of 2018.
