The Clare Ranch Vineyard is tucked in the heart of the Templeton Gap District surrounded by rolling hills, studded with oak trees and walnut orchards. Never knowing what’s in store, 2018 was a warmer year overall. With weeks of high temperatures, this Viognier has great tropical fruit notes of pineapple, green papaya, lychee and honeydew melon. We used 50% new French oak, so this is for you Chardonnay lovers that like a little more oak on your wine! Drink now or for the next 2-4 years.
