The cold weather made me not want to go out at all yesterday so, I decided to make a chicken soup. And yes, like all my other dishes my soup contains wine. Since, our newest release is our 2017 Viognier I thought my dinner should Focus on this tasty delight. if you’re familiar with our 2013, it is slightly different. Just like every vintage of the of the same wine does vary slightly based upon the weather. This year we seem to have a lot of rain again, which most likely if our summer is moderate then we will have softer wines.
This wine exhibits aromas of ripe peaches, which blend with pineapple and soft whispers of honeysuckle. On the palate you get silky peach, nectarine, vanilla and tangerine combining to create a delightful crisp lingering finish.
Enjoy chilled with a kale citrus salad, tangerine glazed ham or a nectarine goat cheese crostini.
I must mention, this Weekend, we are bottling another Viognier. Most likely from the whole run we will see it being bottled on Sunday. So, if you’re a fan I would love to see you on Sunday.
Our 2019 Viognier is locally grown, our winemaker, Robert Reyes, hand-picked these grapes which are exceptionally aromatic with notes of Bartlett pears, apricots and honeysuckle. This full-bodied dry white wine has medium acidity. Enjoy slightly chilled with a pear and Gruyère tart, cream of cauliflower soup topped with hazelnuts or lobster tails with a wildflower honey garlic butter. This wine pairs well with St. Patrick’s Day goodies like Corn beef and cabbage, colcannon and soda bread!
