In 1965, Viognier was on the brink of extinction. Only eight meager acres of this Rhône varietal existed in the Condrieu. That Viognier has crawled its way off of the endangered species list is no small miracle. Capricious by nature, growing Viognier is like walking a tightrope. Sensitive, late ripening and naturally low in acid, she’s a fickle grape and even when you pour heart and soul into her, she might just thumb her nose at you. Her saving grace? Viognier is truly gorgeous, with the aromas and distinctiveness of a Gewürz, the succulent fruit flavors and creamy mouthfeel of a Chardonnay, and that certain je ne sais quoi that gives her a magic all her own. Our 2021 Viognier features striking aromas of stone fruit, quince, citrus, guava and floral notes. A medium-bodied palate with layers of crisp acidity and bright fruit notes leads into a long, lingering tropical finish.
