Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Reminiscent of honeyed tangerine and peach, this wine is crisp and dry, yet round on the palate. Aroma of violets, followed by a long, dry finish.

Double Gold Medal - American Fine Wine Competition 2018
Vineyard Notes
Harvested in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation following Lodi Rules Certification for sustainable winegrowing practices, our grape clones are Tablas Creek cuttings from the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region. Our climate is very similar to that of the Southern Rhône with cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby giving our grapes their ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance.
Production Notes
494 cases produced
Winemaker Notes
All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture the fresh, flavorful Viognier character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with goat cheeses, fish, Asian dishes, citrus salads. A big hit paired with Lamb Tagine at a recent winemaker dinner.
Other Notes
Acquiesce Winery is Lodi’s only dedicated white wine winery. We make premium, food-friendly, white wines and rosés from estate grown wine grapes. Our vines are lightly watered and thinned. The grapes are then handpicked and whole-cluster pressed to maintain their optimal fruit characteristics. We acquiesce to the grapes. . . and to nature.
