The Domaine Montrose Viognier is purposely atypical; it is livelier and less exuberant than those produced in the region. We like it for its freshness and most importantly for its balance.
Winemaking Notes: Each terroir is vinified separately. Grapes are destemmed before a skin contact or a direct pressing, depending on lot. Fermentation temperature is maintained between 15°C to 18°C (59°F to 64°F) to retain fruits aromas. The wines are blended after fermentation and then aged in stainless steel vat, then bottled during winter and spring.
Tasting Notes: The nose shows exotic fruits, mango, and cut hay. Enjoy chilled on its own or with fish, shellfish, Asian food, Indian food, and cheeses.
