Vineyard Notes

The vigor-limiting rootstock and limited irrigation on our small hillside block of Viognier yield intense fruit flavors from smaller berries.  These grapes were harvested when they were very ripe to create a very full and richly textured wine.

Harvest:        September 15th, 2014

Production Notes

Fermentation:  The grapes were picked in the cool morning and immediately pressed.  After settling, the clear juice was racked into stainless tank and fermented at a very cool temperature to retain fresh fruit flavors.

Cooperage / Aging:  The wine was aged for 7 months in stainless steel tank.

Bottling Date:  April 28, 2015
