This Sta. Rita Hills Viognier is a boutique production. Sourced exclusively from the iconic Sanford & Benedict vineyard in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation of Santa Barbara County, this exotic, cool climate, aromatic Viognier was produced by hand harvesting meticulously farmed grapes, whole cluster pressed, and fermented using a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. Barrel aging increased both the varietal character and concentration of this Viognier on the palate. This wine will pair well with Asian and Mediterranean dishes.
