Our Estate Viognier was planted in 1983 and became certified organic in 2006. These thick, older vines toil for nutrients atop Bradford Mountain in Dry Creek Valley and produce a rich and complex Viognier.

Tasting Notes

 

Tropical bouquet; bright acidity on the palate; fresh citrus and apple; soft hints of vanilla but very subtle; long finish. Hawley signature Viognier!
