The Viognier was harvested early in the morning by hand and brought down to the winery for pressing. The fruit was loaded into the press by hand and pressed whole-cluster to stainless steel for cold settling. After 24 hours the juice was racked to New French Oak 132 liter puncheons and inoculated with a French derived yeast strain. Barrels underwent primary fermentation in barrel before being racked and put back to barrel for aging. After 4 months of maturation this wine was sterile filtered and bottled. Our Viognier was fermented in stainless tanks and aged in French Oak barrels. This limited production wine has a highly perfumed nose with a hint of violet, and exhibits exotic flavors of mango, peach and pear. It is a rich white wine with a lush, soft character and long finish.
