2016 King Estate Viognier

2016 King Estate Viognier

Tasting Notes

Known for its floral aromatics and silky creaminess, Viognier is a food-friendly wine that evokes the tropics. A beautiful golden straw color in the glass, the nose delights with fragrant peach, wildflower, nutmeg, oak and a touch of black olive. The gorgeous aromatics are apparent on the palate with flavors of peach, nutmeg, sweet oak, black olive, wildflower and honey. Very round and rich, this wine coats the mid-palate and offers a lingering finish.

Vineyard Notes

Grown at higher elevations, the fruit thrives in the cooler climate. This is a classic Rhône-style Viognier from outstanding vineyards in Oregon’s southern Rogue Valley: Fortmiller, Lakeside and Folin.
