Called “pure Viognier at its best” is the Perry Creek 2006 Viognier, produced from the winery’s El Dorado vineyard. The floral flavors and complex fruit and spice aromas beautifully compliment each other in a harmonious balance resulting from Fair Play’s highly elevated appellation.
The 2006 Viognier was a Gold Medal winner at the Best of Appellation Competition: “Although aged in French oak, it is the classic gooseberry, apricot, honey and lively acidity that play out from the start to the long finish. Grown at a 2,500 foot elevation, this Viognier is another testament to the importance of warm days and cool nights in finding the right balance in the El Dorado white wines.” Perry Creek’s estate bottled Viognier received optimal fruit exposure, which heightens the crisp, fresh fruit flavors characteristic of this alluring Rhone grape varietal.
Enticing aromas of apricots, citrus and orange peel immediately awaken the senses and lead into round, full-bodied flavors of stone fruit and hints of spice on the palate. The refined complexity sets this Viognier apart, and its fine, creamy and slightly toasty finish creates a wonderfully rich mouthfeel.
