The grapes used to produce our 2007 Shannon Ridge Lake County Viognier have a wonderful aromatic intensity with tropical notes of guava, star fruit and peaches. On the palate there is a nice crisp well-balanced silky richness. This wine was barrel fermented to add a creamy richness and we blended a small amount of Gewurztraminer in to help bring out the tropical fruit aromas. Bright, pristine, clear in color. Aromas of guava, melon and peaches. Crisp-rich, tropical fruits and peach flavors with a silky, well-balanced, clean texture.
