Striking aromas of lemon curd, lemon zest, orange zest, orange blossom and spring flowers open up to sweet apricot and white peach on the palate. A touch of North Coast honey is layered underneath the fruit, reminiscent of stone fruit pie. The palate is full-bodied with vibrant acidity that lifts up the richness of the mouthfeel and the finish is everlasting.
Catie's Corner Vineyard
Catie's Corner Vineyard is owned by the Kunde Family and farmed by the Dutton’s, two of Sonoma County’s finest, the quality of the farming coupled with the terroir itself is a combination winemaker’s dream of. This vineyard lies on the eastern end of the Russian River Valley AVA, and the morning marine layer that is common during the growing season will burn off earlier and give the vines a few more hours of sunshine, something viognier appreciates.
