Viognier McManis Family Vineyards


Estate Grown

River Junction AVA

Light straw in color, the McManis Family Vineyards Viognier is a rich, velvety white wine with peach, pear and apricot aromas. Similar stone fruits and vanilla notes grace the palate along with a touch of minerality, leading to a smooth and decadent finish.

Harvest and Production Notes:
100% of the fruit for our Viognier came from McManis’ very own River Junction AVA, located at the confluence of the San Joaquin and Stanislaus Rivers. The vineyards here sit below the waterline most of the year, resulting in temperatures 2-5 degrees cooler than the surrounding area and a more prominent diurnal temperature swing; an excellent climate for premium Viognier.

The fruit was harvested between September 11th – 12th, averaging 26.3 Brix at harvest. The juice was cold fermented in stainless steel to retain the unique fruit characteristics of Viognier.
