2018 Viognier

Best of Class, Double Gold - 2019 Central Coast Wine Competition
Gold Medal - 2019 Orange County Fair Commerical Wine Competition

Tasting Notes
Perfume and exotic spices usher essence of crushed pineapple, wild flowers and fresh apricot to the nose. On the palate, a bright acidity underscores notes of banana custard, minced mango, lemon cream and citrus blossom. The delicate finish resembles cracked coconut, ripe nectarine and zesty tangerine.


Winemaking 
Aiming to preserve the intense fruit and aromatics of the variety, this Viognier was fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel. Hand-picked in the early morning, the cold grapes were pressed within moments after coming off the vine. Following juice settling, a long, cold fermentation commenced. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to preserve acidity, keeping the wine fresh and crisp.

The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 160-acre vineyard is planted to 11 varieties on a large terrace above the Huer Huero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
