1772 Viognier 2016 750ml
The grapes for this Viognier were hand-picked in the early morning
hours before dawn and delivered straight to the winery where they
were pressed cold directly to a stainless steel tank and chilled. To
capture the natural aromas of the grapes and to retain the volatile
aromas of the esters generated during fermentation this wine was
fermented at very low temperature. Just under half of this wine
was transferred into neutral French oak barrels and aged on the
lees for four months to accentuate the richness in the mid-palate
which achieves a balance with the natural acidity of the wine.
Light straw in color, this wine unfolds with refreshing aromas of
honeysuckle, ripe yellow peach, candied orange and ginger, bay
leaf, and ripe honeydew melon. Ripe flavors of pineapple, dragon
fruit, yellow kiwi and candied ginger carry through to the palate.
Serve lightly chilled to allow the flavors and aromas to show their
