Calera Central Coast Viognier 2014
A beautiful bouquet of Asian pear, honeysuckle, white peach and apple blossoms; this lively, flavorful Viognier is juicy and broad on the palate. Bright flavors of star fruit, Gala apple and jasmine flower are delicious and mouth filling, and linger on into a smooth, lemony finish.
Calera is a small ultra-premium winery located in the limestone-rich Gavilan Mountains, east of Monterey and south of Hollister, California. Josh Jensen planted Calera's first 23 acres of Pinot Noir in 1975. An additional 26.6 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Viognier were planted in the 1980s, and 33 more acres, mostly Pinot Noir but also some additional Chardonnay, in 1997 and 1998. All these parces are in the Mt. Harlan AVA that was created in 1990. Calera produces 8 single-vineyard wines from Mt. Harlan, as well as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from grapes purchased from selected vineyards in the Central Coast regions.
