1772 Viognier 2019
The two most important elements captured in this wine are the aromatics and the texture. A voluptuous mouthfeel with a kick of acidity to carry the wine through a long finish showcasing notes of nectarine coulis, daffodil, orange blossom and shaved almond on the finish.
Notes and Pairing Suggestion from Bob Bath, MS:
"Viognier is a grape that is perfectly comfortable with its distinct floral character, full body and softer acidity. There is a reason why Viognier isn’t planted more around the state. Getting that unique character to come out is easier said than done; its careful vineyard management and winemaking that quickly separates good Viognier from ok Viognier. The combination of lower yields, barrel and tank fermentation along with lees contact creates a “classic” Viognier that features richness, complex aromas and more dried fruit flavors. This wine is delicious now and will become even more so over the next five years. Serve this wine closer to 55 degrees in a wide mouth glass. Try it with Summer Squash and Basil pasta. Yum!"
