Ironstone

2013 Reserve Viognier

Sierra Foothills

$18.49

Located at 2400 feet above sea level, the grapes for this Viognier were estate grown at Ironstone's the Hay Station Ranch vineyard where warm days are cooled by the evening mountain air.  The unique soil of decomposed granite mixed with volcanic sediment and red clay produces a wonderful mineral component.  During crush, the hand-picked grapes arrived at the winery in the early morning hours where a combination of old and new reductive winemaking techniques were employed to create this flavorful wine.  To preserve the exotic aromas for which Viognier is known, the juice was cold fermented and maintained in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.  The result is a classic yet refined Reserve Viognier that delivers a tropical bouquet of mango, pineapple and guava with hints of citrus and honey which is followed by delightful flavors of pineapple, citrus and cream with soft oak undertones that lead to a  long, lingering finish.  13.5% ABV QUI
