Alexander Valley

Viognier
Description

The grapes for our Viognier come from the formidable Alexander Valley, where warm days and nights allow rich flavors development and maturation. 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: 

Vibrant aromas of orange, lemon and lime spring from the glass in this 2020 Viognier. 

Palate: 

Refreshing on the palate, citrus fruits are complemented with hints of white peach, nectarine and white floral notes. This is a crisp and delightful wine with a nice minerality on the finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2020 kicked off with ideal growing conditions. Mild temperatures led to evenly developed clusters and an early budbreak was followed by a warm to hot summer. Low winter rains resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Harvest kicked off in early August and all things pointed to normal yields and exceptional fruit quality.
