The nose shows stone fruit aromas of peach, nectarines, and dried apricots with hints of honey in the background. This medium-bodied wine is very well balaned, showing roundness and softness followed by an uplifting crisp minerality on the finish.
Viognier is a white grape believed to have originated in present day Croatia before making its way to the Rhone region of France, where it can be found as a stand-alone wine or often blended with Marsanne and Roussane. Our Viognier comes from the “Campo dos Robles” (field of two oaks) Vineyard, located at Campovida. The CCOF Certified vineyard is located in the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River. The site’s river-bed gravelly loam soil provides an ideal site for growing world-class Rhone white wines.
