SLO Coast Viognier 2022
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 okay Viognier. The combination of lower yields, barrel and tank fermentation along with less 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 the wine closer to 55 degrees in a wide mouth glass. Try it with Summer Squash and Basil pasta. Yum!
