Silver Medal- SF Chronicle Wine Competition
Our Estate Viognier was planted in 1983 and became certified organic in 2006. These thick, older vines toil for nutrients atop Bradford Mountain in Dry Creek Valley and produce a rich and complex Viognier.
Tropical bouquet; bright acidity on the palate; fresh citrus and apple; soft hints of vanilla but very subtle; long finish. Hawley signature Viognier!
Less than 260c produced!
Organically grown; stainless steel fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the natural fruit profile; racked into neutral French oak barrels before bottling in March 2018. This wine was featured as a Futures release in March 2018.
