Our Amazing Grace Vineyard Viognier has been a staff and customer favorite since its debut vintage in 2015. In part, that is thanks to the varietal itself. Virginia Viognier picked fully ripe produces a wine possessed of an exotic, seductive perfume and broad, voluptuous stone fruit character that is difficult to resist. And certainly, in those respects our 2017 Viognier is true to type. Leaping from the glass with musky, floral aromatics of honeysuckle, mayflower, and donut peach, the wine is rich and unctuous, with pear and peach flavors predominating on the palate. What sets this wine apart, however, is its unusual sense of place, also known as terroir character. Where many of its brethren are rather one-dimensionally fruity, Thatch Winery's Viognier is further complicated by an intense, granitic minerality that serves to lift and enliven its palate. Drink any time now-2021.
