The Viognier grapes were hand-picked, gently whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented in neutral French oak barrels using a combination of two different yeasts.  With a beautiful floral bouquet, this wine expresses layers of ripe Anjou pear, peach, and lychee nut with hints of citrus, orange peel and melon.  While the Viognier itself is fresh and clean, the barrel fermentation imparts another layer of creamy texture, which lends to its rich and lengthy finish.
