2016 El Dorado Viognier, David Girard Vineyard
Intense aromatics lift out of the glass with each swirl. Juicy peach and pear notes dance with light floral scents enhanced by just a touch of minerality. At its best, Viognier produces a full-bodied white wine with a lush, soft character. We ferment and age in small stainless steel barrels and a small percentage of neutral French oak barrels, which preserves the luscious fruit flavors while adding a hint of creaminess. Richly textured, this traditionally Rhône-based grape delivers the aromatics and ripe fruit flavors that Viognier is known for.
