The 2018 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard is a juicy, elegant white that has plenty of citrus, tangerine, and floral aromatics as a medium-bodied, textured, layered style on the palate. Pure and beautifully balanced, it reveals building richness and a great finish. It's unquestionably an outstanding wine.

91 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2018 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard is a very pretty, expressive white with tons of varietal character. Tangerine, apricot and sweet floral notes add lovely layers of complexity to this delicious Viognier from Jaffurs. The 2018 was done 55% in stainless steel and 45% in neutral oak. Drink 2019-2023. — Antonio Galloni

Product Description:

Our Viognier is grown at the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. A warmer that average vintage produced a highly expressive wine with aromatics of white flowers, orange blossom and anise. The palate is round, with fleshy peach, lemon curd and chamomile. Malolactic fermentation was blocked after 25%, to maintain freshness in the wine. Finishes with a bright chalky acidity that is typical for this site. Winery
