Dry - Exotic floral and peach aromas of over ripe viognier and balance it with chardonnay picked at the low end of ripeness .

This wine is 50% viognier and 50% chardonnay from grapes grown primarily at Bien Nacido Vineyard.

2009 was generally a cool vintage but we had an untimely heat wave at the end of August that went into early September. Our viognier at the Ibarra-Young Vineyard that we usually keep separate as a single vineyard wine ripened during this heat wave, coming in at too high a sugar. On its own the wine would have been out of balance and too high in alcohol but it was a perfect component for this wine.

The style of this wine is to take advantage of the exotic floral and peach aromas of over ripe viognier and balance it with chardonnay picked at the low end of ripeness . The chardonnay balances the alcohol and adds mouth watering acidity.

This is a wine to drink young, a summer wine. Great on its own as an aperitif, or perfect with any foods you would serve a medium bodied white wine with. It works especially well with Asian influenced dishes.
