How It's Made

The hand-harvested Viognier grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed and then cold settled for 2 days in stainless steel tanks before moving into barrels. This wine undergoes 40% malolactic fermentation and is aged in new and older French oak barrels. The wine is sur lee aged and stirred every 2 weeks until bottling.

The Vintage

2019 started with above average rainfall to the North Coast, with the bulk of the rain falling from January through May. Spring temperatures were cooler, but began to warm in the fall. The end of August saw a bit of a heat wave, but the month of September proved perfect for ripening.
