Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Viognier is abundant with aromas of lychee, citrus, and stone fruit. Flavors are reminiscent of peach and lemon zest, with a crisp, bright minerality on the finish. 85% Viognier, 15% Grenache Blanc
Vineyard Notes
On the Central Coast, the 2014 growing season was drier than average. Although dry, temperatures and overall conditions were favorable, producing a phenomenal fruit set and perfect, even ripening.
Winemaker Notes
Our Viognier blend came from three sites known for growing great Viognier on the Central Coast: Wild Horse Estate and Wild Rose Vineyard in Paso Robles, and Boekenoogen Vineyard in Carmel Valley. Each lot was delivered to the winery in halfton bins and went directly to press. Free run was separated from the press fraction. 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 5 months prior to blending and bottling. A small amount of Grenache Blanc lends to the bright acidity and elegant minerality of this wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Roasted sweet root vegetable medley with carrots, parnsips and sweet potatoes, or a cheese course featuring creamy, aged cheeses.
