Winemaker Notes

When the chance to make a unique wine presents itself one must seize the opportunity. Extended hang time gained by netting the South Face Block of Viognier allowed us to pick this fruit on the 26th of October well after everything else was harvested. The grapes were slowly pressed to liberate the viscous nectar of wildly exotic aromas. On the nose there are effuse aromatics of dried pineapple, apricots, golden raisins, ripe yellow peaches, and tropical fruits that prepare your palate for what is to come; a harmonious balance between sweetness, acidity, and a medley of complex flavors. The stunning finish continues long after the last drop.
