2016 Peay Vineyards Estate Viognier, Sonoma Coast
Usually Viognier is laden with a fruit bowl of tropical aromas and can be fat and unctuous on the palate. Our 2016 Estate Viognier is unique among wines made from this variety and instead delivers a bright and mineral driven wine that enraptures almost all who try it (even the avowed haters of this variety.) The nose on the 2016 Estate features candied ginger, baked apple, orange blossom, and Satsuma mandarin aromas. The mouth is direct and focused with great nerve and tension. There is no fat in the mid palate and the long finish emphasizes a minerally, chalky and salty tang that leaves you salivating.
