Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Viognier has a beautiful nose of lemongrass, fresh-cut pear, agave nectar and orange blossom. Easy on the palate, it expresses bright acidity accented with lilac and white floral notes
Vineyard Notes
Our home ranch on the westside of the High Valley AVA has been known as “High Serenity Ranch” for over one hundred years. The blocks planted to this idyllic site include Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and Gewürztraminer. Each block is comprised of ancient lakebed and alluvial soils from the surrounding mountain range. The transverse valley winds create some of the coolest sites in Lake County. The lower temperatures on the valley floor allow for diurnal temperature swings of more than forty degrees, enhancing flavor development while the retaining a crisp acidity in the fruit.
Winemaker Notes
We picked our Viognier grapes in the early mornings of late August. After twenty-four hours of cold settling, the juice is racked clean and fermentation is started in small stainless-steel tanks. The fermenting wine was transferred to one new French Oak barrel with the remainder to stainless steel barrels. Sur-lee aged for increased texture and mouthfeel. Light fining and filtration prepared the wine for bottling.
