2021 Viognier



The 2021 Sarah’s Vineyard Viognier is based on this noble variety of France’s Northern Rhone - responsible for the famed, rare whites of Condrieu and Château Grillet. Despite a surge in its popularity in California in the 1990s, there is still relatively little Viognier planted in the state.

Tasting Notes

The ’21 Estate Viognier displays aromas and flavors of citrus, white blossom, and tropical notes. Time in the glass offers up juicy pineapple flavors, lemon and lime peel, and a bright crisp finish. The balance of bright acidity and a hint of creaminess from the primarily neutral French oak barrels make this wine a great match for spiced tacos or pasta with a cream sauce.
