Bergevin Lane Love-Struck Viognier 2016, Walla Walla Valley, Washington

Hand picked grapes were pressed whole cluster, creating richer expressive fruit flavors and a fuller texture . Barrel fermentation and the use of five distinctly different yeast types creates complexity, body and a huge spectrum of fruit flavors. Extended aging on the fermentation lees, leads to creaminess and mineral notes. The idea behind this wine is to create an aromatic, romantic wine with elegance using tried and true old world techniques. Tasting Notes: Honeysuckle, peach and pear aromas precede an explosion of pineapple peach and pear. The palate is peachy Bosc pear leading to tangerine with hints of coconut in the background. The Love-Struck finishes with layers of peach, pear and just a hint of hazelnut. 2016 vintage -100% Viognier (Francisca’s-Bergevin Springs).
