2013 The People’s Viognier
Salem Ranch, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
The 2013 People’s Viognier is 100% Viognier from the Salem Ranch in Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. It is hauntingly perfumed, with delicate and subtle notes of jasmine, apricot, white peach and sweet almond. The beautifully balanced wine is medium-bodied. The aromas dance and weave throughout the long finish.
We harvested the grapes on September 28, 2013, at 23.6° Brix, pH 3.47 and 5.8 g/L titratable acidity. The grapes were gently pressed and the wine fermented slowly in a neutral vessel. We bottled 275 cases on February 21, 2014. 13.5% alcohol, pH 3.50 and 5.9 g/L titratable acidity.
