2018 Estate Viognier, Hawley Vineyard
91 Points - CA Grapevine Review
GOLD, 90 points - Orange County Fair
Our Estate Viognier vines were first planted in 1983, as some of the first in the state of California! Barrel fermentation in neutral French oak, following traditional French methods, this release is the original Hawley style Viognier. Full malolactic fermentation makes it a creamy, rich and well-rounded wine. Check out fun images from our 2018 harvest!
Lychee, Asian pear, orange blossom, honey, vanilla. Rich finish.
"Medium-light yellow; attractive, floral, peach and nectarine aroma with a light touch of oak; medium to medium-full body; melon and stone fruit flavors with some richness in the mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended." - CA Grapevine Review - February 2020 Issue
