Vintage Notes
The 2017 growing season was a bit of a roller-coaster with heavy winter rains leading to vigorous vine growth in spring. Bloom came early, in parallel with an eclectic range of springtime temperatures. Moderate early summer temperatures gave way to several heat waves throughout the summer and into fall, heightening the rate of ripening and flavor development in the grapes, and ushering in a slightly early harvest.

Vineyard Notes
Sourced from select vineyards in California's North Coast appellation where the Pacific Ocean breezes cool vines at night and daytime temperatures ensure ripeness of this classic Rhone Valley variety.

Tasting Notes
This Viognier is lively and fragrant with aromas of white peach, jasmine, honeysuckle and lemon zest. The palate is supple with mineral notes, rich flavors of honeyed apricots, lemon curd and crisp acidity for a refreshing finish.
