This aromatic and viscous Viognier exhibits aromas and flavors of nectarine and peach, Asian pear, and white flowers followed by a smooth, yet structured finish. Pair with any shellfish - oysters, lobster, shrimp, crab, etc. as well as soft and/or fatty cheeses.

We destemmed our Viognier and let it soak 24 hours on the skins prior to being pressed off into a stainless steal tank for 2-day cold settling. Juice was then racked into four neutral French Oak barrels where it underwent a 10-day native fermentation. After primary fermentation, one barrel went through full malolactic fermentation was restricted and the wine was aged sur lie for seven months, with regular battonage before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
