100% viognier

Winemaker Tasting Notes
Aromas of white flowers, fresh sliced peach, canned pineapple, ginger root, and caramel. A Rich, oily texture, with flavors of sweet peach, quince, bitter apple peel. Mild acidity and good length to finish. This delightful viognier has moderate residual sugar (3.4% w/v), and might best be enjoyed at the end of a meal.

Syrah and viognier grow side by side at Lytton Estate. Yields are usually such that we can coferment the varieties, making a more complex red wine. In this vintage, however, the syrah failed to set a full crop, giving us additional viognier for a white wine. It fermented in new barrels for five months, without finishing all the sugar. Racked to four-year-old barrels, the wine continued to age on its gross lees. After clarifying naturally through settling, it was bottled early to maintain freshness. This delightful viognier has moderate residual sugar, and might best be enjoyed at the end of a meal. Delicious now, and over the next four or five years. EB (6/13)
