Fish, chicken and spicy Asian inspired dishes.
Viognier can be great and deliver great value at the same time… and here is how! A powerful palate packed with jasmine and white spice, this is tight, focused, an almost crunchy Viognier with all the classic varietal flavors one would expect, yet remains lean and almost muscular.
Grapes are sourced from the Worcester area, where a continental climate brings very cold winters that enable vines to rest before a vigorous summer. Here the vineyards need to be irrigated but yields are controlled by suckering in November – this ensures the vines' energy is directed to the most important shoots and also to promote good air flow in the canopy. Given the high summer temperatures, the grapes are picked at a good maturity and ripeness using machine harvesters to ensure speed to cellar at cool temperature. Careful wine-making results in terrific varietal expression and freshness.
