2020 Viognier

A silver lining from the difficult, smoky vintage of 2020 was that our Viognier ripened early enough so as to be largely unaffected by the wildfires. Yields were down in this dry year, but Viognier is a grape that often delivers concentration relative to its crop size, so flavors are intense and acidity is pronounced for this exciting wine. Aromas of jasmine, kaffir lime, peach and pineapple core stand out from a melange of tropical and floral notes. On the palate, the acidity keeps things less heady: mandarin and apricot flavors complement a mouthfeel similar to sweet orange citrus fruits, carried by a viscous, consistent texture. Enjoy this lush and lively wine now or anytime over the next 3 years. --GH
