Cougar Crest Viognier
Whole cluster pressed, each block of our estate Viognier is fermented separately so that we can blend it after fermentation. Lees stirring in the tank toward the end of fermentation increases the creaminess and body of the finish.
Cougar Crest has chosen Viognier as our signature white wine. It is the major white grape in our estate vineyards. We chose it for its unique heady aromas, rich mouth feel and the fact that it is so different from Chardonnay! Floral, citrus, and melon aromas tempt the nose, and pear, peach and tropical flavors please the palate. A smooth honey-like finish gives depth and length to a wine that can be sipped by itself but also pairs very well with food.
