Our Viognier wants to be noticed for its light acidity, hints of a spring garden and its amazing creamy texture. We get our fruit right here in Calaveras County. These tiny little green grapes love the sunshine and soil in the Rolleri Vineyards outside of Angels Camp.
The first aromas remind us of a spring garden with peaches, nectarine and orange blossoms. That first sip is full of citrus - like pink grapefruit or Meyer lemon. Then comes a hint of honey and a lingering crisp finish. This is an all-season white wine that is ready to drink now.
Chuck Hovey and Romi Rolleri knew each other for years. Chuck loved Romi's fruit and so do we.
This varietal is cold fermented at 55F in stainless steel. The wine is aged for up to a year before being bottled right here in Calaveras County about 1/2 mile from our Tasting Room.
Our Viognier is barrel aged in a mix of new and neutral oak to highlight the floral and tropical nature of the fruit while also adding body and texture to the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs nicely with roast chicken, grilled salmon or pasta alfredo.
