WINEMAKING

Our Santa Ynez Valley Viognier was hand-harvested in September 2019 from two vineyards within five miles of Sunstone. The grapes were whole cluster pressed to tank for fermentation and transferred to 100% neutral American oak barrels for secondary fermentation and aged four months. They were then transferred to tank for cold and heat stabilization. This Vineyard Blend of the two Viognier wines completed aging in stainless steel tanks for three months prior to bottling to 407 cases in March 2020.

 

FOOD PAIRING          

Pair this 2019 Viognier, SYV with any spicy Asian cuisine. The natural sweetness from this wine balances out the tanginess from the dish. Or, try it with grilled chicken coated in a honey bbq glaze. For a lighter style, pair with a fresh butternut squash spring salad.

 

CELLARING     

The 2019 Viognier should be enjoyed now and for up to an additional 18 months. It is not a candidate for long term aging.
