  This 2012 vineyard designate Viognier comes from Saralee and Richard Kunde’s Catie’s Corner Vineyard in the Russian River Valley and features clone 1 Viognier trained on a quadrilateral trellis system. The clusters were hand harvested on October 4 at 24.1 degrees brix when the fruity characteristics were at their peak and the berries just beginning to change to amber in color. The fruit was pressed whole cluster to tank, the juice was settled at 42º F, then racked two days later. The juice was fermented and aged in tank and malolactic conversion was inhibited. The lees in were stirred once a month for four months.
