2016 Dry Viognier

2016 Dry Viognier
2016 Dry Viognier

Viognier is the grape that brought me back to Idaho and it continues to be central to our love affair with the Snake River Valley.   Aromas of citrus and peach mingle with honeysuckle flowers.  The texture is round in the mouth, with the weight typical of good Viognier and the finish has vibrant acidity and clean, fresh fruit flavors.  A wonderful wine for summer sipping.”

- Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

Floral aromas greet you first, with elderberry flowers and lemon blossoms in the nose. The flavors take you into stone fruit, with white peach featured prominently. The body has good weight and the acid gives you a long and luxurious finish.

Production notes

The Dry Viognier was picked once the grapes matured to a medium ripe, stone fruit flavor profile. At the winery, the whole clusters were gently pressed at low pressure for 3.5 hours. The juice fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures for 3 weeks. We filtered and bottled the wine in January 2017, just a few months after harvest, in order to capture the freshest aromas in the glass. 1400 cases produced.

Other notes

The Dry Viognier is a great match for rich and creamy food and most offerings from the sea. Because the wine balances a rich texture with clean lively aromas and acidity, it will counterpoint rich food or can be used as a compliment to lighter dishes.Try this Viognier with lemon herb chicken, your favorite seafood dishes or be crazy and pull out the fondue.  Bon appetit!
