Alexander Valley

Viognier
Description

Each block of Viognier was harvested individually by hand at night to preserve the delicate flavors. The fruit was sent directly to press. This wine is unoaked to retain the bright acidity of the cooler 2019 vintage.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2019 Viognier opens with a bouquet of tropical fruit, bright citrus, and a soft touch of honey.

Palate: 

On the palate you will find that this wine is layer with fruit including tangerine and peach balanced by soft floral notes. This medium-bodied Viognier is fruit driven with bright acidity and a long lingering perfumed finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Heavy spring rains enriched the soils and delayed bud break by a few weeks. A heat spike in June, followed by warm weather, brought even veraison throughout the vineyards. A cooling trend and touch of rain in mid-September created ideal conditions for the 2019 harvest which is considered a near-perfect vintage. The grapes for our Viognier come from the formidable Alexander Valley, where warm days and nights allow rich flavors development and maturation.
