Fermenting this wine in an Italian clay amphorae allowed for the great aromatics that are inherent in Viognier to be expressed, while adding great body and roundness to the mouthfeel. This Viognier is bursting with aromas of cantaloupe, lychee and banana peel. In the palate, the wine is full, round and fat, leading into a clean, crisp finish. The combination of rich mouthfeel with bright acidity on the finish makes this wine difficult to sit down.
100% of the fruit for this Viognier came from our estate Culloden Vineyard located in the Horse Heaven Hills. Fruit grown in the Horse Heaven Hills tends to have ample fruit development, while maintaining bright acidity.
