Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Viognier is a perfect warm weather wine, with light and bright notes of orange blossom, Meyer lemon, and apricot, followed by softer hints of white pear and kiwi. A bright acidity and crisp, dry texture carry the aromatics beautifully, creating a lush and vibrant bouquet. This well balanced wine is round and refreshing, and will bring your next picnic to life.
Production Notes
Grapes were carefully hand harvested on 9/2 from Cedar Lane Vineyard in Arroyo Seco. The fruit was lightly pressed and juice settled in tank at 55F for 24 hours before being inoculated with Rhone 4600 yeast. Next, one half of the juice was put into neutral French Oak barrels for fermentation and the other half remained in stainless steel. Fermentation lasted 15 days, and the wine continued to age in the tanks and barrels for another 3 months, partially undergoing malolactic fermentation. The wine was combined just before bottling on 1/11/18.
