The 2017 Estate Viognier shows a gorgeous green-gold color, with delicate aromas of preserved lemon, persimmon and flint, accented by cardamom spice and subtle hints of saline sea spray. Despite our location in one of the cooler corners of the Howell Mountain appellation, our estate yields a wine with tremendous depth and a silky yet full-bodied mouthfeel. In signature Rudius style, you will note that this wine carries a fresh acidity that perfectly balances the bright lemon curd and honeydew flavors, which flesh out across your palate, bound by cool slate understone. Our Viognier shows a touch of youthful tightness now, but that will certainly fade after a few more months in bottle, leaving the wine drinking beautifully until 2023 or beyond.
