Winemaker's Notes:

Calera means limekiln in Spanish. It is no wonder the founders first planted in 1975, his grapes on limestone soil that is barely accessible on a mountain side. Founder Josh Jensen was influenced by the Burgundy winemakers in France and decided to make wines grown in limestone-rich soils. Jensen believes in a minimalist approach to wine making. The grapes were hand harvested and whole grape cluster pressed and the juice was moved by gravity to Calera's barrel cellar. The wine was aged without racking in neutral French oak for 7 months. Sourced from the best sites for Viognier from San Benito and Monterey County, this 2011 Calera Viognier is a delight at your everday dinner table or to enjoy in the warm breezy afternoons. 90 Points Wine Advocate

Tasting Notes:

The palate is bright and refreshing with some mandarin orange, almond, and tropical fruit. Viognier has a fascinating range of ability to pair with food. With the richness and creamy texture of Chardonnay, balanced acidity of a well made Sauvignon Blanc, and a flavor profile of a Riseling, no wonder Viognier has be showing up at many fine dining establishments. Choose foods that suggest sweetnes but are not really sweet. Such as Moroccan tagine of chicken, curry, or ginger and orange friend chicken. Slow roasted root vegetables, risotto, and oily nuts are good consideration as well as CHEESE, so bring out the cheese platter. Only 840 cases produced
