  • About the Wine:
    Viognier has many proponents and few detractors, yet it is a variety that is not widely understood or consumed. The Temecula Valley has a climate that is very conducive to the cultivation of Viognier. It is a wonderfully exotic and very intriguing varietal with flavors and aromas that show honeysuckle, orange blossom and peachy-nectarine. At Carter Estate we ferment Viognier in stainless steel to accentuate the fruity nature of the grape and then finish fermentation and subsequent aging in new French oak (approximately 8 months). This little bit of wood gives the fruit characters depth and complexity and round the flavors with a pleasant, toasty nuttiness. This is a very dynamic wine that has wonderful character and richness
