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. After fermentation, the wine was aged in neutral French oak barrels for four months.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

This lovely Viognier opens with honeysuckle and Mandarin orange aromas. 

Palate: 

Crisp and refreshing, flavors of lime and lemon zest mingle with peach and apricot with notes of orange blossom. This is a well-balanced wine with a touch of minerality on the 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.
