Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2016 Central Coast Viognier has aromas of lychee, stone fruit, passion fruit, slate, and bright minerality. The wine is ripe with an opulent acidity. Flavors of zesty key lime, pineapple, and Nashi pear lead to a clean, fresh finish.
Vineyard Notes
This wine is sourced from two great vineyards. Wild Rose, in the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles, provides our Viognier grapes. It’s a beautiful site, with rolling hills known for hot days, very cool nights, and calcareous soils. Our Grenache Blanc grapes come from Santa Barbara Highlands, about an hour east of coastal Highway 101. The vineyard sits above 2,300 feet, making for a unique microclimate where temperatures are below 60˚F every night.
Winemaker Notes
Each lot was delivered to the winery in half-ton 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 3 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
Enjoy this wine with seared scallops, pad Thai, or aged cheeses.
