Aromas of zesty lemon, ripe apricot, yellow peach and citrus blossom with subtle hints of honeysuckle and blood orange. The palate is classic viognier, medium-bodied with lots of texture and packed with tropical fruit flavors. The finish is exceptionally long and luxurious.
Catie's Corner Vineyard
The Viognier grapes hail from Catie’s Corner vineyard located in the northern area of the Russian River Valley. This famed growing region is famous for its relatively warm days and very cool nights attributed to a nightly marine layer pulled in from the pacific ocean. The Russian River’s much wider ancient route formed fine silty loam soils, perfect for high quality white winegrowing.
Whole cluster press to tank for a two day cold settle. Racked off primary lees and inoculated with yeast. Barrel fermented to dryness in neutral oak barrels and aged for 6 months before bottling. Lees are stirred every two weeks for the first three months in barrel.
