The fruit for our 2015 Viognier was harvested between September 29 and 30th, 2014. The majority of fruit came from our own Estate Vineyards and averaged 28 Brix at harvest. The juice was cold fermented in Stainless Steel to retain the unique fruit characteristics of Viognier.
Light straw in color, the 2014 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.

I absolutely love this wine!!! It's refreshing with a hint of peach undertones. This is my favorite voiognier and my favorite white wine overall.
