Pure Luck (Viognier)
Our 100% Viognier wine is fermented and settled in neutral oak barrels as well as stainless steel tanks. We marry these two styles of Viognier so that it opens softly yet still has a crisp fruity finish. It has no residual sugar and partial malolactic fermentation.The apricot, pear, and citrus bouquet highlight this refreshing white wine. Currently serving and selling 2015.
Pairing Suggestions: Asian, cajun, seafood; pear or citrus dessert

This is truly a wine with decadent character. We ferment our Petit Verdot with Viognier skins and then add 5% of our Viognier wine prior to bottling. The Viognier allows more floral bouquet also reducing some of the harsh tannins in the Petit Verdot, which makes this an exquisite marriage. We are currently serving and selling the 2015.
Pairing Suggestions: Steak, bold cheeses, dark chocolate, cherry, raspberry, or chocolate desserts
