Aequorea 2019 Viognier Paso Robles

With Viognier we aim for a style so much different than what is typically produced in California, choosing to showcase what can be done with the variety on the extremes of the coast where it struggles to ripen. Things really came together in 2019, as we had a nice long growing season, ultimately picking the Vio on October 11th with perfect chemistry. This year we chose to ferment 40% in stainless steel and the other 60% in older French oak barrels, giving us a good balance of bright, fresh elements to go with the slightly more textured component of the oak aged portion. Effusively aromatic, it bursts forth with notes of lemon curd, pineapple, white peach, crushed rocks, green banana, and ginger. The palate is bright and mineral driven, showcasing notes of lemon, white flowers, granny smith apple, pomelo, with a subtle briny character. It finishes taut and crisp, framed by taught line of acidity.

Philosophy

Aaron is microscopic wine producer located in Paso Robles, on California's Central Coast. created in 2002 as the brainchild of winemaker and Central Coast native Aaron Jackson, the simple goal is to produce stellar petite Sirah from superior Paso Robles vineyards. being trendy or making wine for the masses is the least of our concern; we're all about pursuing passion. At Aaron, we live and breathe by our motto: "Life should be outrageous. Go Big or go home." The wines we craft reflect the knowledge we've gained for everything and everyone in our lives, as well as our desire to think outside the box and ignore boundaries. We dig in the dirt, talk to the vines, and make wine on the edge. In essence, we always go Big.
