2018 Viognier – Light straw in colour with alluring aromatics of nectarine and apricot, this Viognier sings of summertime. The juicy palace impresses with yellow peach, bright lemon and melon. The crisp finish offers sweet notes of key lime, sugar cookie dough and citrus peel.
Winemaker notes – surrounded by cooling waterways along with rich soils of sandy loam, the Clarksburg wine growing region is earning a reputation for growing premium Viognier grapes with optimal acidity. The 2018 vintage was warm and consistent with fruit being harvested between 26-28 degree brix. Letting the grapes hang on the vine for longer than usual enhanced the natural tropical nature of this viognier.
Enjoy with grilled chicken and peaches, drizzled with a honey mustard sauce alongside an orzo pasta salad. For dessert, sip with a hard pecorino cheese topped with honey.
