    Winemaker's Notes:

    Single vineyard, 100% Viognier - this beautiful wine was fermented in neutral French burgundy barrels. Suave and focused - think spice, asian pear, with a hint of wysteria blossoms. A long deep vein of crushed minerals take it all the way to an excellent, long finish. This is why you should be drinking Viognier!

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sourced from a portion of Den Hoed's Wallula vineyards high in caliche and hence active lime, K Vintners' 2011 Viognier was fermented in older barrique. Grapefruit, white peach and acacia in the nose persist on a palate luscious and subtly oily yet as brightly citric as virtually any wine from this grape that I can recall – for an effect as if it had been blended with Riesling. Cress, grapefruit peel, crushed stone and salt enhance the invigoration and saliva-inducement of a long and refreshing, if faintly bitter, finish. This won't only be a delight to drink over the next couple of years, I suspect it will be worth following for longer than that too, and may well achieve a seductive patina.
