2016 Acquiesce Viognier
Harvested in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation, these grape clones are Tablas Creek cuttings from the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery. Lodi's climate is very similar to that of the Southern Rhône with cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby giving the grapes their ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance. All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture the fresh, flavorful Viognier character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions.
