Vinification:

The viognier was destemmed into fermentation bins.  After a brief cold soak, the grapes were inoculated with yeast.  The fermentation took place on the skins over the course of 8 days.  When the fermentation was done, the grapes were pressed and the wine was aged in barrel for 8 months.
