Hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed fruit from our Estate Vineyard and the Crawford Vineyard combine to make the core of this Washington State Viognier. The meticulous care in the vineyard shown by both growers speaks volumes in this wine as it displays layers of floral aromas backed by white grapefruit, lemon, and Asian pear. On the pallet, tropical notes of mango, pineapple, and nectarine show nicely with a touch of orange zest and honeydew melon. A balanced flash of acidity provides a refreshing and long-lasting finish. This graceful and entertaining Rhone white can easily be enjoyed while sipping poolside or savor a glass with fresh seafood like Dungeness crab, black cod or lemon and macadamia nut crusted halibut. Also, get creative and pair with some things more on the wild side like cashew chicken, blackened sea bass with rosemary and thyme polenta, or something fun like sweet and savory baked chicken with pineapple and tarragon glaze.
