Sanford Sanford & Benedict Viognier
Our estate grown 2014 Viognier is from the iconic Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. While known primarily for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this great property also grows a few acres of lovely Viognier. Now twenty years old, these vines produce a wine that is always a much sought after favorite.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
Hand harvested and barrel fermented in neutral French oak, this aromatic Viognier has the intriguing combination of floral and exotic fruit characters that make this variety so appealing. Aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and ripe stone fruits jump from the glass. On the palate, this wine delivers bright fruit flavors and lovely mouth feel and, due to our cool climate, this is balanced by minerality and crisp acidity. This wine will pair well with dishes with a little spice, such as Asian and Mediterranean cuisines.
