Alban Vineyards Central Coast Viognier 2022
Something I hope you’ll enjoy sharing with your customers is our 2022 Central Coast Viognier: Medium straw color, deep rich nose of apricot, peach, and mango with ginger and exotic spices. Round and dense entry with classic Viognier oiliness, mouth coating while maintaining freshness with lush fruit, spice, creaminess, long with a surprising, gentle and bright upturn of acidity at the very end. The ’22 CCV cries out for some crab or shellfish but it will pair nicely with a wide array of cheeses or chicken dishes.
Hand harvested at night all from our estate vineyard: fermented 80% in stainless, 10% in used 300L barrels, and 10% in Clay Amphora. The finished wine was bottled in May of 2023. 500 cases produced.
