Winemaker Notes

This wine is a rare example of cool-climate viognier; it shows off the flavors of the Northern Rhone region of France more than most California-made viogniers that tend toward the more lush, tropical side. It has flavors of apricot, white peach and hints of citrus, and sports a nice, tight mineral structure with higher acid. I love it with crab cakes or stir-fried pork.

Wine Enthusiast
Even though this wine is unoaked and inexpensive, it’s one of the best Viogniers out there. It shows the lean, drily crisp profile of Edna Valley whites, with wildly exotic flavors of citrus, tropical fruits, wildflowers, peaches, pears, minerals and vanilla. At this price, it’s a giveaway.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Full-figured and charmingly floral, Viognier is one of the most important white grapes of the northern Rhône where it is used both to produce single varietal wines and as an important blending grape. Look for great New World examples from California, Oregon, Washington and cooler parts of Australia.
