Viognier

Copy of 2017 viognier front_edited.png

Current Release Vintage- 2020

66 cases produced

$20 bottle/ $240 case

Review of our 2016 release:  Viognier is one of the most difficult wine to craft in Washington, thanks in no small part to the variety's difficulty to grow and timing of harvest.  When well done, like this example, it can be glorious, with aromas of orange blossoms, vanilla cream and hints of Mandarin orange zest.  This has zippy acidity in the finish.

Current Release VIntage- 2020

97 cases produced

$20 bottle/ $240 case

Review of our 2016 release:  If you try to classify this Chardonnay, it's probably more Sonoma County style than Chablis, thanks to a rich mouth feel loaded with pretty tropical fruit, including starfruit, Asian pear, juicy ripe pear on the finish, backed by steely acidity through the impressive finish.

Tasting notes from our 2014 release (Petite Sirah/ Syrah): This wine is very complex, a sweet nose with Bing cherry and oak. Mouthfeel is rich and full with massive tannins but not excessively drying.  Fruit fills the palate and finishes with just a hint of Dr. Pepper.

Review of the 2016 release from Winepress Northwest: This is one of three wines made with red Bordeaux varieties that earned Platinum in 2020.  Black cherry, dusty herbs and all-spice aromas turn into flavors of blackberry and cassis that continue to pulse in behind refined tannins and enjoyable acidity.
