Pride Mountain Vineyards Viognier Sonoma County 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Our estate Viognier is the first release from the 2010 vintage, and with its lovely aromatics and sumptuous flavors, is a perfect herald of spring! The vines are planted along the very crest of our Spring Mountain property where they soak up the afternoon sunlight that ripens them to perfection. While the 2010 vintage was full of surprises and a heat spike led to sunburn in many Napa Valley vineyards, our ambient temperatures never exceeded the 90's and our vines up above the fog line were unaffected. Grapes were harvested in six passes between October 12th and October 26th and were then fermented in 50% stainless steel and 50% neutral (at least five years old) oak barrels, with periodic lees stirring to create texture and weight.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less
