Description

Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Viognier by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. Our estate vineyard, named in memory of Fess’ late son-in-law, was planted in 1989 to predominantly Rhône varietal types. The wines from this vineyard have consistently been some of the most expressive and highly acclaimed in our portfolio.

This Viognier is marked by forward peach, apricot and honeydew flavors. The palate is full and voluptuous with subtle floral, mineral and citrus notes, yet maintains beautiful balance due to bright acidity. Enjoy!

Wine Critic Reviews
"Rock-solid notes of nectarines, flowers, and peach all emerge from the 2018 Viognier Rodney's Vineyard. This rounded, soft, undeniably delicious white has good freshness, a pretty, balanced texture, and a clean finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
