"Brilliant straw. Penetrating aromas of fresh citrus and pit fruits are complemented by hints of chalky minerals, ginger candy and violet. Densely packed yet lithe in the mouth, offering juicy nectarine and Meyer lemon flavors that show nervy drive and excellent focus. The floral note comes back strong on the incisive finish, which lingers with impressive persistence."

Cristom Vineyards

Cristom planted a little over an acre of Viognier in 1993 (and added another acre of Viognier adjacent to this in 2003). The choice to plant Viognier early on at Cristom was based on Steve Doerner's sucess with the grape in California. There is very little Viognier planted in the Willamette Valley with Cristom’s now 20-year-old vines likely standing as the oldest in the region.

Barrel-fermented in a combination of neutral oak barrels and stainless steel. Full malolactic fermentation. The wine aged 11 months on its lees.
