The Late Harvest Viognier is from an esteemed vineyard’s small parcel in Foxen Canyon that was handpicked with significant brix (sugar). The fruit was crushed and soaked on skins overnight to further extract the ample botrytis or noble rot. Pressed to tank for a long, slow, cool fermentation and then racked to age in neutral French oak barrels. Perfectly balanced sweetness from the the natural grape sugars makes this the ideal dessert wine.
Pairings: Dessert wines like this are great matches for various desserts and work especially well with blue cheeses, foie gras, and desserts like crème brûlée.
