Quady North Steel-Ox Viognier 2018
The 2018 vintage gave our third edition of the “Steel-Ox” Viognier. In most years, we produce separate single vineyard Viogniers from the Steelhead Run and Ox Block sites. However, more recently, the better wine has been a combination of the two sites, which we then call our “Steel-Ox". It seems that Mae’s Vineyard gives intensity and some phenolic “bite”, while Steelhead Run tends to be more aromatic and lifted. Tasting Notes include Peach pie, apricot, and citrus rind aromas. The wine is textured, with medium body, but has a sense of minerality, with a crisp finish.
