Russian River Valley
September 2, 2020
2020 Aida Viognier
Fresh peach and apricot notes are infused with floral notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. The varietal characteristic roundness on the mid-palate is complimented with a crisp finish of salivating acidity.
Gregori Vineyard is planted in the heart of Green Valley, Russian River. This cooler area of Russian River allows the fruit to maintain a fresh acidity, while the famous Goldridge soil promotes excellent drainage and concentration of fruit.
The vineyard was harvested at the beginning of September and was pressed to neutral barrels where fermentation took place over the following 15 days. The wine was aged for 6 months in neutral French oak barrels with regular stirring of the lees, and filtered before bottling. The wine was unfined so may drop light tartrate crystals over it's life.
Food Pairing Notes
Asian noodles pair perfectly with this wine as well as herb crusted goat cheese.
