Late Harvest Shahpar
2013 Signature Viognier, Napa Valley
Darioush Viognier beautifully expresses the eclectic and exotic character of this varietal. Grown in the cooler locales of the Oak Knoll appellation, with its dense early morning fog and afternoon breezes, enables this rare and finicky variety to ripen slowly yet completely, revealing layers of bright fruit, floral and tropical flavors which define fine Viognier.
Much like the previous vintage, our 2013 Signature Viognier is luscious and generous in fruit, though more limited in availability.
Aromatically inspiring with the familiar notes of jasmine, orange blossom and lime combined with a juicy yet tangy mix of summer peaches and papayas balanced by the crisp acidity of Asian pears and kumquats. This wine offers a rich, rewarding combination of exotic flavors, textures, tartness and intrigue.
