Peltier Station Viognier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Viognier, with its floral notes, seems to blend best with aged cheese but you can certainly take this wine anywhere from aperitif to dessert. This wine has a bright platinum color and exhibits luscious floral, rich fruity aromas and flavors that suggest fried banana and a tropical tone down at the finish. Full-bodied, but a perfectly balanced acid structure makes it accessable and enjoyable for all palates.

  The Schatz family has been growing grapes in the Lodi Appellation since the 1950's.  They purchased a special vineyard where the winery is now located which is lined by a historic railroad spur where three packing shed were once located.  In the early 1900’s these packing sheds were common stops for locomotives to load the famous Lodi grapes and ship them to wineries and home winemakers throughout the nation.  Thus, the label Peltier Station emerged in honor of the local history and abounding railroads that helped build California. Passion for growing grapes evolved into passion for creating great wines and many were crafted from the twelve varietals that are grown in their vineyards. The family’s Italian heritage also brought two unique wines that we share, Teroldego and Vermentino.     Farming “green” has always been a part of the Schatz mission and all of their vineyards are a part of the “Lodi Rules for Sustainable Wine Growing Program.”  This is a third party certification program that was created by scientists, academics and vintners and known to be the most recognized in the industry covering all facets of land stewardship.  Our mission is to produce outstanding wines by nurturing our vineyards in bringing forth the unique essence and full expression of the vines thus creating wines to enjoy from our place to yours.  Read less

This ia not a wine. It is some kind of liquid flower. Most Viognier has that floral nose but taste like some strange Chardonnay. Not this. It tastes like drinking orchids. I'm not a white wine drinker but this is one of my favorites. It has so much WOW factor that you white wine drinkers may have to take some time to appreciate it. (Sorry for being snobby but this stuff is good.) It did pair nicely with both chicken and cheese.

Among the most bold viogniers I've tried in many years, this presents with a wonderful bouquet of late spring floral aromas that translate into cream and spice on the palate. Yet, acidic enough to pair well with meats and cheeses alike.

Peltier Station's newest offering, this wine has a beautiful appearance. With a nose of banana and full-bodied, the 2006 Viognier pairs well with aged cow or goats milk cheese, but you can take this versatile wine anywhere from aperitif to dessert. Being seafood's dream, this wine also has enough delicacy not to overpower subtly flavored chicken dishes and is robust enough to stand up to pork or lamb and is perfect for a champagne breakfast or brunch. Chill slightly first, then open and enjoy!
