The grapes for this wine were gently pressed and fermented for over two months at a very cool temperature in a mixture of French, American oak and stainless steel barrels using almost a dozen different yeast types to achieve texture and layers, as well as intense aromatics.
The Viognier grape produces a wine that is both exotic and seductive. The grape originates from the tiny and very steep hillside appellation of Condrieu in the Northern Rhône Valley of France. This Viognier possesses beautiful aromas of apricots and peaches gently touched by vanilla and cinnamon. A palate loaded with honeyed apricots, rich vanillas, subtle hints of tropical fruit and just a touch of toasted oak complete this elegant wine.
This wine is perfect as an aperitif; or will accompany grilled swordfish or frogs legs in cream sauce.
