Toasted Head Late Harvest Viognier
Hand picked in the coolness of the night and then dried on raisin mats for 4 days to concentrate flavors, the apricot and peach flavors that our Viognier vineyards produce are deeply enhanced in Toasted Head Late Harvest Viognier. Flavor notes of ripe pineapple and papaya are also to be savored. French oak aging adds a creamy texture and flavors of hazelnut and crme brulee. For a taste treat pair this wine with bread pudding with dried fruit and caramel sauce or a fresh fruit tart with almond cream shortbread.
