"The 2017 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard offers lovely complexity and nuance, with a touch of neutral oak character that adds frames apricot and peach Viognier fruit. Layered, vivid and beautiful, the 2017 is gorgeous. Drink this refreshing Viognier over the next few years."

"The 2017 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard was brought up a mix of stainless steel and neutral oak. It offers a ripe, sexy, Condrieu-like bouquet of orange marmalade, flower oil, and honeyed peach to go with a juicy, vibrant style on the palate. Viognier is always a rich, opulent variety, yet this wine pairs these elements with good acidity and a balanced, refreshing style. As with the Grenache Blanc, it's going to be incredibly versatile on the dinner table."
"Jaffurs Wine Cellars is dedicated to producing great Rhone varietal wines with a new-world independence. Our wines -Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Viognier, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc – are among the best in the county. Founder Craig Jaffurs produced his first professional wines during the 1994 harvest. All of our wines are carefully made in small lots. Only about 5000 cases are produced each year — production is limited. We work closely with our growers in the Santa Ynez, Ballard Canyon, Santa Rita, Los Alamos, and Santa Maria growing regions. We limit vineyard yields and require that optimal farming practices are observed. All of our wines are crushed, pressed, cellared and bottled in our Santa Barbara facility. Visit us for a glimpse of world class winemaking in the heart of the city. 2013 was our 20th harvest!" -Winery
