Gorgeous floral aromatics capture the brightness of this wine. Great texture from the skin time delivers flavors of ripe pear, yellow plum, peach, and dried apricot. A touch of graphite keeps it fresh, not cloying.
Situated in the southeastern region of the Sonoma Valley AVA, Landa Vineyard is blessed with warm days and cool nights during the grape growing season. The Viognier fruit from this special site develops an abundance of sugar, which is balanced by natural acidity. We allow select clusters to hang into November in order for botrytis cinerea to progress – developing the “noble rot” that creates intensely concentrated aromas and high sugar levels. This late harvest treat is similar in style to the memorable wines of Sauternes.
