VIOGNIER 2021

$19.00

January 2023 White Wine of the Month
To create our first wine of 2023, we used old vine Viognier grapes from the warm area of Ripon in California. In this area, the weather conditions are exceptionally good to ripen the best Viognier grapes. Twenty percent of the Viognier was fermented and aged “sur lie” in new French oak barrels. To create harmony between alcohol and acidity we added a touch of our crisp and fruity Chardonnay from Clarksburg, California. This tasty wine has a full body and shows notes of peaches, apricots, honey, and roses.

Blend: 90% Viognier, 10% Chardonnay
Grower/Vineyard: Colavita Vineyards, Ripon, CA (V) & Heringer Vineyards, Clarksburg, CA (CH)
