The 2022 Viognier is our thirteenth bottling of the Rhone's best-known white grape. The Viognier grape, known more from the northern Rhone than the area around Chateauneuf-du-Pape, shined in 2022, adding vibrant acids to its typical lush, floral, stone fruit profile.
A charming nose of honeysuckle and Haribo peach. The palate is long, pure, and textured, with more stone fruit and a tarragon-like note of sweet green herbs. Rich texture is balanced by some structural weight and unusually good acids for Viognier.

The 2022 vintage was our third year of drought, but because the rain that we received came early, the vines showed good health though with cluster counts down by about 15%. Two frost events, one in April and one in May, reduced yields further. A cool first half of the summer was followed by our hottest-ever August and September, producing an early start and an even earlier finish to harvest. The vintage's extremely low yields produced concentrated flavors, noteworthy texture, and intense fruit.
The Viognier grapes were whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks using native yeasts. During our blending trials, we selected two lots, both of which balance the grape's classic stone fruit and honey flavors with brighter-than-usual acids, for our varietal bottling. These lots were blended in April 2023, settled, and bottled in June.
