Winemaker Cary Gott Notes
This vintage of is made from Kick Ranch Viognier, which is sustainably farmed in the Fountaingrove District appellation. The hand-picked fruit was carefully selected, and night harvested at the exact moment when the fruit reached the right maturity and acidity levels to craft an elegant, delicate style of Viognier. The grapes were delivered to Punchdown Cellars on the morning of September 18, 2018. The wine was made in the classic style of whole cluster pressing into a stainless steel tank. The resulting Viognier juice settled in the stainless tank for two days and then went through a three week cold fermentation process. After the completion of the fermentation process, the juice was transferred into 75 gallon stainless steel barrels to age ...more... sur lie in barrels for six months to achieve a full expression of this delicate fruit. The Viognier was filtered and bottled on April 15, 2019. The results are a crisp, dry, and full-bodied Viognier with notes of citrus flowers and passion fruit. This wine will age gracefully for several years and will be a favorite to have with lighter fare of seafood, poultry and the elegant cheeses of Sonoma County. It is produced from 100% Fountaingrove District Appellation Viognier grapes.
