By using phased picking, Winemaker Hugh Chappelle had some additional components for crafting this wine. Harvesting the Viognier just as it was entering maturity produced lots with bright citrus flavors and lower alcohol. Harvesting some of the Viognier a little later yielded a richer wine with touches of peach and apricot that were a perfect foil for the tropical notes of the Sauvignon Blanc. In the glass, the tropical fruit aromas are center stage, accented by the subtle exotic notes from the Viognier. But it's on the palate that the Viognier most reveals itself, contributing to a rich mid-palate and a crisp, long finish. A perfect wine to enjoy through the spring and summer with seared scallops or a bowl of Pad Thai.

Over the years, Quivira has never shied from innovation, moving outside of the realm of convention in a quest to make the best, most authentic wines, from our vineyards. This Viognier-Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect example. Quivira pioneered this blend, taking the traditional technique of co-fermentation reserved for reds and putting our own spin on it to make a unique white. The result is a wine that showcases the expressive qualities of these two varieties while melding them into a beautifully aromatic offering.
