TASTING NOTES

100% Viognier

The 2013 Viognier is abundant with aromas of lychee, citrus, and stone fruit. The flavors and mouthfeel are aplenty with peach, apricot and lemon followed by a crisp, bright, medium bodied palette with a crisp lingering finish.

VINEYARD NOTES

On the Central Coast, near Paso Robles, the 2013 growing season was drier than average by about 70%. Although dry, temperatures and overall conditions were favorable, producing a slightly higher-than-average Viognier crop. The fruit came from three vineyards throughout the Paso Robles viticultural area: Wild Horse Estate, Nevarez, and Fralich.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Each lot was delivered to the winery in half-ton bins and went direct to press. Freerun juice was separated from the press fraction to maintain pH balance and avoid bitterness due to the high concentration of tannin inherent to Viognier skins. Juice was fermented in tank and then transferred to all neutral French oak barrels at 17° Brix to complete primary fermentation. This wine aged sur lie in neutral French oak for six months prior to blending and bottling.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Enjoy this wine with seared scallops, pad Thai, or aged cheeses.
