2017 Goosecross Viognier

2017 Goosecross Viognier

Pale straw in color, the 2017 vintage is complex, aromatic, crisp, and refreshing. There are tropical notes of mango, summer peach, honeysuckle, and jasmine flower. The palate is bright and lean, full of ripe golden apple, apricot, Asian pear, and a touch of graphite. Enjoy it on its own or pair it with a mild Thai coconut vegetable curry or savory roasted butternut squash soup.

WINE PROFILE:

Viognier is one of the older if not ancient, varietals thought to have been introduced to France by the Romans in 281 AD. Challenging to grow and make wine from, Viognier rewards with full-bodied wines with a lush, rich character. The fruit is grown in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, a region known for its dense morning fog and cool afternoon breezes. This unique microclimate allows Viognier to ripen slowly, resulting in the gradual development of complexity in the fruit without the overdevelopment of sugar in the berries.
