Joseph Phelps Viognier Napa Valley 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

BLEND & GRAPE SOURCES: 100% estate-owned Viognier from Napa Valley (90%) and Carneros (10%). WINEMAKING DATA: Grapes were harvested between September 11 and October 15 at an average 24.0º Brix. One portion was barrel fermented and aged in two- to three-year-old French Oak barrels, and the other was fermented in stainless steel and aged in two- to three-year-old French oak. The best individual lots were then carefully selected and the final blend crafted in May, 2003.
