2016 Les Vents d'Agnes Viognier
The nose of the Les Vents d'Anges Vgionier bears the typical intense aromas of white flowers, peach and apricot. The finish is long which with clementine and stone fruits seeming to be the dominant flavors, as the wine opens more floral tones appear on the back end.
Les Vents d'Anges, "the wind of angels" is a tribute to Genevieve de Beaubien, M.D., the beloved sister of Al Schornberg, owner of Keswick Vineyards. Pronounced the same as vendanges or "harvest", the wines bottled under this label are typically fruit forward and delicate, sometimes with a hint of sweetness.
100% Tank Fermentation
The grapes were pressed using a Champagne program and placed in tanks for 6 months. Fermentation was halted after a few days to ensure the wine has a small amount of residual sweetness.
