97% Viognier from Deep Sky Vineyard, Cochise County, AZ. 4,200 ft. elevation. 3% Verdelho from Dragoon Mountain Vineyard, Cochise County, AZ. 4,300 Ft. elevation.
This wine saw only minimal cold-stabilization, did NOT undergo heat-stabilization and is filtered, but un-fined.
We've met quite a few superb AZ Viognier's over the years and are convinced that it will have a place in this state for many years to come. Made with fruit sourced from the Asmundson family at Deep Sky Vineyards, this is a classic Viognier with the trademark characters of quince/pear, white blossoms and a soft mouthfeel accentuated by neutral oak aging. Only 24 cases Produced. Drink now.
