A classic Jaffurs Viognier, from the cool-climate Bien
Nacido Vineyard. Floral aromatics, with pineapple and mineral notes, this wine
fleshes out on the palate with juicy nectarine and focused acidity. 60%
stainless-steel aging provides vibrancy and tension, with the balance aged in
neutral oak, lending texture and developed aromatics.

The 2016 Viognier Bien Nacido Vineyard is terrific. There is
lovely varietal nuance, but done in an understated style that is all about
grace. Silky and polished, the 2016 is delicious.

Very chalky, tightly wound and mineral-driven on the nose,
this expertly restrained bottling also shows Key lime, slight white peach and a
whiff of daffodil on the nose. Zippy as can be on the sip, flavors of lime and
pink lemon are overshadowed by chalky tensions and limestone flavors, much like
licking a white rock.
