The Vintage

The vines got off to a slow start as April and May were both cooler and wetter than average. The cool trend continued into the mild summer and a full growing season that was our coolest since 1978. The exception was one notable heat spell in late August, when temperatures soared to over 111° F! Fortunately, September and October brought enough warm days to provide a beautiful finish to the growing season, allowing us to complete harvest a full week earlier than in 2009.

The Wine

Very tropical on the nose with hints of spice, baked apple pie and coconut. The spice aromas carry through on the palate with mandarin oranges, pineapple, vanilla and hints of grapefruit leading to a long finish aided by cantaloupe and orange soda. Only 320 Cases Produced.

Food Affinities

The highly aromatic and fruit forward nature of Viognier makes it a perfect match with spicier foods such as Thai, Chinese or Indian Curries. It is also good with heartier fish fillets, chicken, mild cheeses and cream based dips.
