2016 Reserve Viognier
Our Viognier grapes were gently hand-picked, whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented in neutral French oak barrels. This exotic, full-bodied, rich-textured Rhone style wine expresses layers of peach, pear and tangerine, and powerful aromas of apricots, orange peel and violets makes it one of the world’s most recognizable grapes. While the Viognier itself is bright, clean and fruit forward, the barrel fermentation imparts another layer of creamy texture, which lends to its lengthy finish and rich mouth feel. This is the white wine for red wine drinkers. A lovely Viognier to pair with shellfish-crab, prawns, scallops and rich fish such as black cod and sturgeon especially with cream sauces.
