Fostered within our estate's nutrient-rich ancient riverbed soils, Viognier has long been one of the most iconic and revered varietals of Rideau. Our 2016 vintage knocked it out of the park, becoming one of the most highly-acclaimed wines in our history. It was the top-rated Rhône wine in Wine Advocate's report of our region, scoring 94 points and earning comparisons to the elite wines of Condrieu, France. We know this new vintage will continue the trend. Fermented and aged in neutral French oak, it shows complex and pleasing elements of dried plantain, toasted coconut, and white chocolate, with a luscious mouthfeel that is supported by surprising acidic clarity. At once immediately pleasing and structurally age-worthy, this wine can be enjoyed now, but you'll also want to cellar a few bottles and watch it evolve over the years.
