2016 Mountainview Viognier VQA

Our Mountainview series of wines are a dedication to place, as great terroir is a key ingredient in winemaking. Our location on the Beamsville Bench is a place like no other, with history millions of years in the making. Once the shoreline of Lake Ontario, this region is abound with minerals and heavy soils. The heavy clay forces the vines to work harder and dig deeper for food and water, at times pushing to more than 30 feet deep. With such deep rootstocks, these vines typically produce better fruit.
All of our Mountainview wines are limited in production and vinified using the best fruit of a given vintage. Viognier is an uncommon varietal in Niagara, but tends to grow quite well. This grape varietal is more full bodied than most white wines, yet generally likened to a Chardonnay.

Our Mountainview Viognier displays apple, pear and tropical fruit on the nose. The palate is quite complex from its French oak barrel aging. The impact of the barrel  adds roundness and a creamy texture, but doesn’t eclipse the stone fruit that brightens up the mouth feel.
