Description

Vineyard Notes:

The Viognier is from Bokisch Vineyards in North East Lodi. Markus Bokisch’s passion for his work pours out of him when walking through his vineyards. He meticulously farms 1,000 acres of vines organically and sustainably. Lodi’s climate is ideal for ripening Viognier, warm days and cool nights yield a harmonious balance of fruity aromas and bright acidity at moderate sugar levels.

Vinification:

The Viognier grapes are night harvested and whole cluster pressed for gentle handling. 60% of the lot is fermented cold in stainless steel to retain the fresh tropical fruit flavors, while the remaining 40% is fermented in neutral French oak barrels and sur lie aged for 6 months giving the wine a richness on the palate.
