Tasting Notes

Known for its natural aromatics, the wine exhibits notes of wildflower, candied peach, nutmeg, vanilla and nectarine with hints of coconut on the nose. Barrel aging shows on the mid-palate, with flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue, tangerine and guava. A savory finish reveals hints of olive and white pepper.

Vineyard Notes

From two Quail Run Vineyards in Oregon’s southern Rogue Valley – Fortmiller and Lakeside – this is a classic Rhône-style Viognier. Grown at higher elevations, the fruit thrives in the cooler climate. Established in 1989, Quail Run Vineyards is located in the growing region of southern Oregon where Viognier thrives.

Winemaker Notes

The wine was fermented in two lots, 72% in stainless steel and 28% in barrel. It then aged sur lie for five months. The barrel component was aged in French oak, imparting greater weight and spice notes to the finished wine, while the stainless steel component keeps the wine fresh and focused.
