The 2022 is another sensational Viognier and is on the less fruit-driven and more mineral side of our Estate Viogniers. The 2022 emphasizes lemon thyme and lime oil smells. The wine is medium-bodied and linear with bright acidity and limestone, chamomile, and lemon notes that linger in the after-taste.

Peay Viognier does not resemble typical French or American Viognier in style. This is due to our very cold growing conditions and Vanessa’s desire to capture our site’s unadorned, singular expression of Viognier in the bottle. She ages in 100% neutral barrels to promote elegance and to reveal the nervy, high acid, mineral character of our Viognier; the result is the opposite profile of a typical Viognier.

The 2022 is another sensational Viognier and is on the less fruit-driven and more mineral side of our Estate Viogniers. The 2021 offers a touch more peach and candied ginger aromas whereas the 2022 emphasizes lemon thyme and lime oil smells. It is such an arresting nose that it snapped my head to attention and immediately made me start to salivate in anticipation of the acidity and minerality I knew was on deck once I took a sip. The wine is medium-bodied and linear with bright acidity and limestone, chamomile, and lemon notes that linger in the after-taste. This is an elegant and energizing wine emphasizing intensity over power, and is really delicious. Serve with raw fish, crustaceans, southeastern Asian dishes, and roast chicken.
