Lush notes of banana cream pie, candied orange peel, spring flowers, apricot and peach.  Viognier is the "prettier" sister to Chardonnay...the red wine drinkers white wine.

Tasting Notes

Lush notes of banana cream pie, candied orange peel, spring flowers, apricot and peach, and a very subtle hint of honeydew melon. There is so much going on here that it will make you do a double take, finding something new with each sniff. This is a full bodied wine with moderately firm acidity, and a finish that you won’t soon forget.

Vineyard Designation

Catie's Corner Vineyard

Vineyard Notes

The grapes used to make this wine 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.

Production Notes

Whole cluster press to tank for a one day cold settle. Racked off primary lees and inoculated with yeast and sent to neutral barrels for barrel fermentation. Fermented to dryness in barrel and aged for six months prior to bottling.

Pairings

Serve with Pad Thai, Seared Scallops or Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Apricot.
