Our Viognier is grown on the Naramata Bench on the Tightrope Estate Fleet Road Vineyard. Extensive work was done in the vineyard to make this wine. All the vines were shoot and fruit thinned to one cluster per shoot. The canopy was also carefully managed. As always the grapes were handpicked.

At the winery, the grapes were whole cluster pressed and the juice was cold soaked for three days before being racked off solids. The juice was then racked to barrel for fermentation. A combination of French Oak and Acacia barrels were used. The fermentation was carried out at 14-16°C and took 14 days to complete, before it was aged on lees for another 3 months in barrel. Malo-lactic fermentation was not performed.
