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 Rhone 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
"The 2019 Viognier Rodney's Vineyard is laced with hints of apricot, spice, chamomile and melon. Barrel fermentation in puncheon with lees stirring adds volume, and yet the 2019 remains quite fresh." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "...clean, classy, and medium-bodied, with good Viognier typicity in its orange blossom, honeysuckle, and spice-laced aromatics. Drink it over the coming year or two." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
