Bridlewood Reserve Viognier 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Central Coast Reserve Viognier is a blend of grapes from several vineyards throughout the Central Coast. The vineyards were selected by winemaker David Hopkins, each for their own distinct terroir. The grapes were harvested on different days – at the peak of ripeness – and gently destemmed without crushing, before being pressed to avoid inclusion of bitter skin components. After initial cold settling, the grapes were racked, fermented and aged in stainless steel. This is a Rhône style wine that is truly one of a kind.

A slightly sweet, aromatic viognier with citrus and flower aromas and a peachy palate. Very good. Would be excellent with curries, fish dishes.

Opens with aromas of honeysuckle, tangerine and jasmine and then gives way to an array of tropical fruit accents when allowed to air. Flavors include fresh nectarine, an array of tropical fruits, and a haunting minerality with citrus tones. It has a light but mouth filling texture, fruity mid palate and a long clean finish.
