2018 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. I often describe this wine as the Red-Wine Drinker’s white wine because of its powerful flavors and considerable mouthfeel. A great viognier should have aromas to seduce your nose and a body that makes you glad to be alive. Enjoy the Queen of the White Wines in the Snake River Valley.”

-Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

The flavors and aromas of our Viognier take you into stone fruit, with white peach, citrus and passion fruit featured prominently along with lemongrass, vanilla, allspice & key lime pie. The texture is luxurious, the body has good weight and the acid gives you a long and mouthwatering finish. This wine is summer in a glass!

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 2019, just a few months after harvest, in order to capture the freshest aromas in the glass.

Other notes

Consider this wine with roasted chicken with couscous or wild salmon with a soy glaze. If you’re feeling adventurous nothing pairs better with Viognier than a bucket of oysters and friends!

When to drink: Enjoy now and often!
