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 7th, 2017

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 barrel fermented and aged 8 months in neutral French oak barrels.

Bottling Date:  May 14, 2018
