100% Viognier. Half of the fruit comes from Cedarville (decomposed granite) and the other half from Sumu Kaw (volcanic). The granite soils provide the texture and floral quality while the volcanic gives density and fruit. The wine was co-fermented whole cluster and aged in tank.
This Viognier is more reminiscent of its Rhône iteration than most other examples I've had from the sunshine state. They don't usually make a varietal Viognier at La Clarine Farms, but the 2018 vintage was so good it spoke for itself. Everything you want from this grape on the nose: a field of fresh white and yellow flowers, soft herbs, and a perfectly balanced acidity on the palate with a waxy, but not oily texture.
