Yarden Viognier

Yarden Viognier
Product Number: [KW00358]


The aromatic 2006 Yarden Viognier shows off attractive notes of fresh peaches, apricots and flowers with hints of spice and perfume, all highlighted with a background of smooth oak. While flavorful and rich the wine retains elegant drinkability. Viognier is still a fairly new variety for us but it seems that the wine will age very gracefully over four to seven years from the harvest. We enjoy Yarden viognier with rather exotic flavors. Try with a pureed white bean soup flavored with smoked goose breast and served with a drizzle of white truffle scented olive oil or wild mushroom ravioli tossed with shavings of some good aged gruyere.

The Vintage: A relatively warm, dry winter preceded the 2006 vintage season. Very low rainfall caused great worry until a cold wet April delivered enough rain to bring the seasonal total to 90% of normal. The relative cool continued to the end of July, delaying the start of harvest by about ten days. Near perfect conditions then prevailed until almost the end of the vintage when, on the 15th, the first of five October rains hit. The precipitation (five times the October norm!) delayed to November the final 8% of harvest.

The 2006 Yarden Viognier is made from Viognier grapes grown in Odem Vineyard, the highest wine vineyard in Israel, at an elevation of 1,200 meters (close to 4,000 feet) above sea level. One third of the wine fermented and aged for seven monthes in new French oak barrels, one third in previously used French oak barrels and one third in stainless steel tanks. This combination gives a wine both rich and aromatic, both intense and elegant.
