J Vineyards & Winery Viognier Alexander Valley Hoot Owl Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Whole grape clusters were hand-harvested and gently pressed in J’s Coquard press. This French press gently minimizes the extraction of harsh seed and skin flavors.

A 25-year legacy of making exceptional wines to inspire in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. www.JWine.com As a gutsy 25-year old woman, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following. Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's 9 Russian River vineyards, and recognized the ability to also craft remarkable still wines. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great still wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, today we are proud to produce award-winning sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal still wines. www.jwine.com www.jvineyards.blogspot.com www.twitter.com/JWinery Facebook: www.facebook.com/JWinery Read less

Not as aromatic as expected of this varietal. Loads of tropical fruit. Banana, coconut, pina colada and other tropical fruits. Nice and very refreshing. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011



Tasting Notes:

The 2009 J Vineyards Viognier features a very subtle gardenia and orange blossom fragrance on the nose. This seductive, layered wine exhibits a creamy peach, honey and vanilla flavor on the palate. This luxurious Viognier is the perfect “bridge” wine for salads featuring multiple greens. The key is to not drench the greens with heavy dressings. Fresh, crisp, and clean are the watchwords for food pairings with Viognier.

Whole grape clusters were hand-harvested and gently pressed in J’s Coquard press. This French press gently minimizes the extraction of harsh seed and skin flavors.
