Production Notes The fruit for our 2012 Viognier was harvested between September16 and Sept. 25th, 2012. The majority of fruit came from our own Estate Vineyards and averaged 26.6 Brix at harvest. The juice was cold fermented in Stainless Steel to retain the unique fruit characteristics of Viognier.
Winemaker Notes Light straw in color, the 2012 McManis Family Vineyards Viognier has aromas of Peach, Pear and Apricot. The rich, velvety wine is full of fruit flavors promised by the aroma. The long fruit finish has a slight note of minerality, but is smooth and lacks any of the bitterness often associated with this variety.
