TASTING NOTE

 

A variety of vinification methods were employed with fruit from various sections of vineyard treated in different ways. Some were just destemmed, others destemmed and crushed, others whole bunch pressed. The whole bunch pressed fraction was run straight to barrel. The destemmed batches were settled overnight in tank and run into barrel the following day. A proportion of fine lees was added back to those barrels. All ferments were conducted by indigenous yeasts.  The Viognier spent 11 months in French oak, 15% new, with regular lees stirring in the first six months. No malolactic fermentation occurred. Before bottling the wine was fined and filtered.
