Viognier is planted at the highest point in our estate Huerhuero Vineyard and benefits from the cooling Pacific breezes that blow through the Templeton Gap in the afternoon. The fruit was handpicked in early September and only the ripest, highest quality bunches were selected. Upon harvest, the fruit was pressed and the juice was cold settled and racked into a small stainless steel tank to begin fermentation with a selected yeast strain that complements the expressive fruit of the variety. After fermentation, the wine was left sur lie under cold conditions in stainless steel for four months to retain its fresh, bold characteristics while adding complexity prior to filtration and bottling.
Enjoy now through 2018.
