Viognier is one of our favorite wines to make. Generally co-fermented along with Syrah in France, it also makes a striking stand-alone varietal. Viognier is known for strong tropical fruit aromas, especially when it is harvested very ripe. Our 2016 vintage was fermented with a hybrid yeast strain that accentuated the aromatic profile. This year’s harvest brought us beautiful Viognier grapes with notably higher total acidity. We complemented this acidity by leaving a touch of sweetness, giving this wine improved balance with more complexity than the previous vintage.
