2023 J. Lohr Gesture Viognier

Pale yellow in color, the 2023 J. Lohr Gesture Viognier offers aromas of gardenia, white peach, nectarine, and Meyer lemon. These aromas are complemented by the rich, balanced palate of lemon custard, ripe orange, and a long, textured finish.

The grapes for the Gesture Viognier are grown on our Rain Catcher Vineyard in the Adelaida District of western Paso Robles. Rain Catcher was planted in 2010 and is the westernmost vineyard in the appellation. It captures the highest amount of annual rainfall of any winegrowing property within the Paso Robles AVA; its overall climate is nearly identical to that of the northern Rhône. Rain Catcher’s warm days with southern and western exposures on its hillsides help to naturally develop ripe, lush flavors, while its nights allow for extra hangtime, giving the wine power and depth. The climate, combined with the well-drained soils of calcareous shale and weathered sandstone, makes this vineyard's terroir ideally suited to growing Viognier. After hand-picking and a 10- day fermentation, the wine was aged six months in acacia barrels and puncheons.
