2016 Straw Viognier

2016 Straw Viognier
2016 Straw Viognier

"This delicious dessert wine is classified as a 'Straw Wine' which means we turned the grapes partially to raisins either on the vine or scattered on the vineyard ground.  Our wine turned out intensely aromatic and flavorful, yet with so much natural acidity that the finish is clean and delightful. This wine is dessert all by itself, we recommend capping the night off with this wine and a summer sky full of stars, a crackling fireplace or a table of friends."

                                                   -Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

The aromas remind us of opening Grandma's jar of fresh canned peaches.  You'll also find flavors of honeysuckle and rose petal. 

Production notes

As the grapes reached about 23 brix in September, the leaves around the grape clusters were removed from the vine, leaving the clusters exposed to full sunlight. The grapes were dried on the vine for eight weeks to intensify sugars. On November 8, 2016 the grapes were picked and pressed at 32 brix.  Pressing took 24 hours to complete.  Fermentation took place in stainless steel barrels over four weeks.  Fermentation was arrested at 9% alcohol. Wine was filtered and bottled in June 2017. 

Other notes

A selection fo blue and aged cheeses (especially Gouda and Parmigiano-Reggiano), dried fruts and posciutto, fruit tarts (especially peach and pear), créme brûlée, almond confections - or just by itself!
