Style

Brooklyn Oenology’s Viognier has a complex prole, showing its terroir’s influence on aromatics and structure while simultaneously maintaining the refreshing characteristics of this classic Rhone varietal. The enticing nose is of ripe pear, crisp citrus, and white flowers, and the palate adds fresh melon, grapefruit, lime, and honeysuckle. It nishes clean, with notes of stone and rose. An elegant and delicious wine.

 

Pairing

Sushi, seafood, Asian, salads, vegetables, goat cheese and soft cheeses, dishes with citrus elements.

Process

First, grapes were crushed and the juice allowed a few hours of skin contact. Fermented in-tank at a cool temperature, then stirred on its lees in-tank for a few weeks to extract maximum aromas and enhance its prolonged nish. All winemaking was done in stainless steel. Rested until ready for release in 2010.
