2015 is the fourth vintage for the Reserve Viognier. As is our practice, this Viognier received hands-on treatment throughout and new French Oak for a short aging period. The 2015 Viognier Reserve is selected from our High Plains vineyards. Immediately following harvest the grapes were pressed near the vineyard to limit skin contact. Fermentation took place at Pedernales Cellars, initially in stainless steel, but a portion finished fermentation in new French Allier barrels and remained in barrel 4 months for aging. The final blend is a melding of this barrel-aged Viognier which we put through full malolactic fermentation, and Viognier finished in stainless steel to provide a balance between the fresh fruit qualities, and the complexity and tannins of the barrel aged lot.
