In 1990 Ron and his wife Jamie, bought their first vineyard and in 1995 McManis Family Vineyards was formed with the purpose-built winery arriving by the end of the Millennium. Now the McManis family owns over 2,600 acres between the Ripon area and Lodi in California’s northern interior region.
Alan's personal notes "For those not sure of Viognier, this is delicious - really expressive, great weight and unctuous pineapple and peach flavours. Go on - you'll love it!".
Bright in hue and is medium straw in colour.
This wine is filled with big, bright fruit aromas of pear and peach.
The wine is viscous and creamy in the mouth. All the flavour promised by the nose is amply delivered with a long finish.
