2022 FRICTION VIOGNIER OAK KNOLL NAPA VALLEY
A gem cannot be polished without Friction.’ Viognier is a difficult grape to grow, in restricted conditions and therefore a difficult wine to make, requiring specific ongoing attention in order to flourish – the resulting wine from the efforts however is a polished gem of a wine. Sourced and hand harvested 100% from Rodger’s Vineyard in Oak Knoll, Napa Valley, the 2022 Viognier has notes of yellow peach, while cinnamon and citrus blossom dominate on the nose. On the palate, peach persists with accents of dried pineapple and apricot. The mouthfeel is soft like viognier should be and is balanced with a bright natural acidity. Fermentation begins in stainlss steel tanks then is transferred to neutral French barrels to finish maturing.
