2018 Estate Viognier

$20
Club Price: $16

Cline’s Viognier offers rich and distinctive aromas of pears, apricots, orange blossoms and honeysuckle. It has a blockbuster flavor and full-body mouth-feel.

This wine draws from four of our Sonoma Coast Estate vineyard. Three of the vineyards (Catapult, Diamond Pile and Lazy M) are located in the cool and fog-shrouded area to the East of Petaluma. The fourth is located at the Five Sisters home ranch estate. A combination of soil from volcanic to loam combined with the cool evenings and warm days provide ideal conditions for this ancient grape.

The grapes were hand-picked and destemmed before being pumped to our gentle tank press. The juice was chilled and settled and approximately 50% was fermented in neutral French oak barrels to enhance richness. The balance was fermented cold in temperature-controlled stainless tanks which helped to maintain the floral and stone fruit elements of this wine.
