Perry Creek Viognier El Dorado County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Apricot, citrus and orange Peel in the nose, followed by a crisp, yet creamy and toasty finish. lively acidity and refined complexity form a harmonious balance. Pure Viognier at it's best!

The winery's 40 acres of premium vineyards are located in Fair Play Appellation. Decomposed granite soils and a balanced microclimate at a 2,500 foot average elevation allow us to produce premium grapes with the distinct flavor of the foothills. Our Fair Play Farms vineyard, planted in 1999, is one of the best in the entire Sierra Foothills. The grape growing sites in this vineyard were chosen to bring out the best quality in each varietal and all of the vines are pruned by hand. The first crops were dropped to increase vigor in the plant and to promote better fruit. All rootstocks and clones were matched to the unique soil situations in every block, creating the most distinction in the produced wines. Perry Creek’s winemaking team of Garrett Buckland, Stefan Tscheppe and Jonathan Pack combines experience from Napa, Austria and the Foothills. They share a vineyard driven approach, developing a personality and character for each wine they produce. At the same time they incorporate the typicity of the varietal and the unique flavors of the different vintages. The unique, complex and elegant flavors representing Perry Creek Winery and the Terroir of the appellation have earned us 90Pts+ ratings in Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and many other competitions.

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. Called “pure Viognier at its best” is the Perry Creek 2006 Viognier, produced from the winery’s El Dorado vineyard. The floral flavors and complex fruit and spice aromas beautifully compliment each other in a harmonious balance resulting from Fair Play’s highly elevated appellation. The 2006 Viognier was a Gold Medal winner at the Best of Appellation Competition: “Although aged in French oak, it is the classic gooseberry, apricot, honey and lively acidity that play out from the start to the long finish. Grown at a 2,500 foot elevation, this Viognier is another testament to the importance of warm days and cool nights in finding the right balance in the El Dorado white wines.” Perry Creek’s estate bottled Viognier received optimal fruit exposure, which heightens the crisp, fresh fruit flavors characteristic of this alluring Rhone grape varietal. Enticing aromas of apricots, citrus and orange peel immediately awaken the senses and lead into round, full-bodied flavors of stone fruit and hints of spice on the palate. The refined complexity sets this Viognier apart, and its fine, creamy and slightly toasty finish creates a wonderfully rich mouthfeel. Try pairing the Perry Creek 2006 El Dorado Viognier with seafood, spicy Asian salads, and chicken. 100% Viognier. Aged 8 months in oak. Enjoy now until 2010.
