June, 2017

We are trying to find enough room in the winery to bring in the 2017 vintage that looks to be large based on the fruit set. Stop by the Wine Gallery in downtown Scottsdale on June 9th for the release party to taste and purchase the 2014 Viognier.

Sky Islander Wine Club Members get a glass of the new Viognier while others can do a tasting of this summer wine for free. We will have some gourmet nibbles to pair with the Viognier.

As we continue to explore the mystery of the Viognier grape grown at our altitude and in our unique terroir, the 2014 LDV Viognier is another version that defies the status quo and brings the excitement of a first date. 2014 brought a low yield crop with high fruit intensity. The amber tint of the wine should give an indication of what is to come. The skins presented a color profile not yet seen without the grapes being overly ripe.

Enjoy this wine on its own or with a wide variety of foods. It offers a nose and mouthful of tropical fruits from pineapple to mango with a burst of fresh honey and vanilla. The oak is in the background but offers spicy notes that will complement the richness of grilled halibut, sea bass, or steamed lobster. However, this Viognier will also work well with brie cheese and fruit as well as crème brûlée.
