2021 Singer Baker Lane Estate Viognier

Tasting Notes The protracted cool weather of the growing season was responsible both for extending valuable flavor accumulating hang time facilitating exceptional acid retention for our fruit. With a textbook period of perfect fin de saison warmth, the grapes glided in to full phenolic maturity leading to a wine that conveys all of the exciting hallmarks of Viognier (lavish floral and stone fruit sparkle and charm coupled with a compellingly textured mouthfeel) that is tethered to an uncommonly vivid measure of palate brightening acidity.
