Et Fille 2016 Deux Vert Vineyard Viognier
Our 2016 Viognier from Deux Vert Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA represents what we love about Viognier... a lush aromatic nose tempered by lean acidity and minerality. We think what makes this Viognier unique is that it is from a single vineyard in the cool climate Willamette Valley and that we ferment it entirely in small lot stainless steel drums, allowing us to increase complexity by using different yeasts. Wine Spectator has rated a prior vintage of our Viognier a 90.
Dad: Lime flower and tangerine aroma. Honeydew melon, white peach, grapefruit, tangerine palate.
Fille: This is a serious Viognier- its Asian pear and tropical fruit aroma is followed by a complex fruit palate, zippy acidity, and balance. It has the elegant restraint of Helen Mirren with maturity, control, and complexity. It accents spicy foods and seafood beautifully.
