A hallmark of this variety is the exotic aroma. This vintage does not disappoint with heady fragrances suggesting dried apricot, lemon grass, citrus and white pepper. The fully structured palate shows off volumes of apricot, fennel, anise and a background of citrus. An extremely long finish reinforces the depth & complexity of this wine.
About Breaux Viognier
Planted originally in 1996, Viognier was one of the first new plantings on the Breaux estate following the purchase of the property in 1994. The Viognier vineyards are in the mid to upper mountainside at approx. 825-950 ft. elevation, allowing the delicate buds to avoid late spring frost damage typical at the valley floor. Rows are inter-planted between 518 and 1036 vines per acre on lyre trellis. The soils are primarily composed of granite parent material creating slightly acidic soils with excellent drainage.
