Wild Thing Viognier 2018

Balanced Viognier, with great structure: lively citrus, gentle white flower aromatics and creamy texture through gentle barrel fermentation and 8 months spent sur lie. Grapes grow in the Damiano Vineyard high up in the Sierra Foothills region of the Sierra Nevada. 4% Marsanne is added to the Viognier.

Great structure to pair with chicken, pork or rabbit with creamy sauces. Serve with shellfish with a hint of spice or dishes with ginger; saffron and coconut. Vegetarians can share it with carrots, parsnips, sweet potaties and spicy butternut squash.
