This delightful wine possesses a classic Viognier character, with heady aromas of nectarine, peach, citrus, gardenia and orange blossoms. On the palate, the wine is lush, round and oily, with a bright acidity that brings balance and lingering richness to the wine. Truly a gorgeous viognier in line with our best vintages.
Our viognier is grown in three separate blocks, each contributing something special to the blend. The Mountain Top block sits at the summit of our estate, basking in sunlight and developing exuberant flavors and an unctuous character. The Lower Mountain Top block is on a south-facing hillside and consequently develops a range of flavors, slightly riper and richer at the top of the hill and brighter and leaner at the bottom. Our Terraces block is cut into the western edge of the estate and contributes bright acidity and floral notes. All the viognier grapes are hand-harvested at night then gently pressed and racked to neutral French oak barrels for fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is entirely inhibited.
