Brilliant greenish straw color introduces the floral aroma of jasmine, with grapefruit, peach, apricot, pineapple guava, passion fruit, papaya and toast. The flavor is punctuated with ripe white peach, banana and guava… very pleasant and full with great viscosity and balance. The Freemark Abbey Viognier is a refreshing wine that yields both complexity and a pleasurable lingering experience.

The winter was one of the driest on record, although we did receive 75% of normal precipitation. The relatively dry, warm winter promoted early bud break and a cool spring supported a long flowering period. The balance of the season was moderate to warm. The crop was very light, with small clusters of small concentrated berries, and the fruit ripened about two weeks early in most cases.
