2016 Gard Vintners Freja Viognier/Roussane
Gard means "farm" in many Scandinavian languages. Gard Vintners was founded in 2006 and is family owned and operated. It is located in Washington's Columbia Valley AVA, near Walla Walla. The Lawrence family has been farming in the area for over 50 years.
Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.
Bright notes of lemon/lime, white peach, lychee and white flowers. A touch of spice, similar to citrus zest adds complexity. Swirling adds a light sweetness to the fruit and a touch of honeycomb. The palate is fresh, polished and impeccably balanced, finishing with hints of citrus and minerality.
