Vivacious Dry White 2014

Vivacious Dry White 2014

Viognier + Roussanne

Vivacious is a lightly-oaked, perfectly balanced blend of two great white Rhone-style grapes - a most beautiful marriage! Blending the voluptuous mouth feel and aromatics of Viognier and the honey-like texture and minerality of Roussanne produces a wine with a delightfully crisp finish that pairs well with all foods. "This wine's peach, melon and flowers aromas are bright. The palate is dry and fleshy." - Sean Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast

WINERY SPEC SHEET (pdf download): 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

COMPOSITION: 76% Viognier and 24% Roussanne. 13.8% ABV.

AGING: Drinks well now through 2018.

VINTAGE 2014: Warm temperatures and an abundant, early crop produced picture-perfect grapes with soft tannins in the reds. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot had vintners most excited. With no rain, no early freezes and a harvest that was mostly done by Halloween (about two weeks ahead of usual), Washington vintners were all smiles. With no heat spikes and cool nighttime temperatures, the acidity balances in these young wines was ideal. Even though it was a warm harvest, generally the whites were of superb quality, while the reds garnered elegant tannins.    

VINEYARDS: Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKING: Greg Koenig, Consulting Winemaker. Fruit parcels from our Rhone varietal vineyards were vinified separately. After free-run, light skin contact, and fermentation in tank, partial malolactic fermentation occurred during barrel maturation in a mix of steel as well as new and old barriques - French, American and Hungarian oak in origin - for a period of 9 months.  The wine experienced a light filtration, fining, and cold stabilization prior to bottling. Bottled: June 2015.

CELLARS: Vinted, Cellared and Bottled in Koenig Winery, Caldwell Idaho (Snake River Valley)

CLOSURE: Traditional Cork

MARKETS: Winery Tasting Room. Wine Club Members across the USA. Fine Dining + Premier Retail Distribution to Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Alaska and Wyoming.
