2014 Estate Innamorarsi
The nose shows displays notes of honey, caramelized apples, baked fruit pie with a hint of toasted almonds in the background. The palate shows amazing roundness and viscosity that contributes to a long-lasting finish. This is all balanced by the high level of acidity that keeps it bright and crisp.
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.
