Graff Viognier

Graff Family Vineyards, Chalone, Viognier 2007 Smelling the glass is like getting close to a bottle of perfume – very pretty and enticing. There’s loads of peaches in this wine with a sense of acidity in the background making this a bit fresher and more lively than some of the richer incarnations of this grape – nice. The grapes were sourced from the Head Vineyard originally planted by Chalone’s founding winemaker Dick Graff. The wine was aged in French oak, 10% of which was new. Winemaker Dan Karlsen. P&B in Greenfield 14.7% $16.99 at Bottle Barn
