The 2022 Viognier comes from 2 vineyards that we have worked with for several years now. We carefully blended the grapes from these two cool-climate sites to create the ultimate Viognier expression. We harvested nearly equal amounts from a hilly, sandy site called White Hawk, and the balance from the site that we planted in Santa Maria Valley about a decade ago. The 2022 vintage has all of the hallmark qualities of a proper Viognier...light, delicate, floral, honeyed, citrus...a stunning dry white wine. This vintage benefited greatly from the extra long hang time, yielding an intensely rich and perfumed Viognier - a real stunner! Production, was once again tiny on this wine.
"2022 Viognier has attractive tropical, honeyed fruits as well as some minty herb notes, medium body, good balance, and a clean, classy finish. A solid, balanced Viognier, it will be versatile on the dinner table." 91 Points Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2022 Viognier is a very pretty, delicate white. Sweet floral accents meld into apricot, mango, and peach. This mid-weight Viognier is all class." 91 Points Antonio Galloni for Vinous.
