SOPRA Viognier 2020
Costa Toscana Bianco IGT
Designation of origin: Costa Toscana Bianco IGT
Grape variety: Viognier
Information about the grape variety: Viognier is a white wine grape that is grown primarily in the Rhone region. Viognier harvests are generally small. This grape variety was also almost abandoned because of the phylloxera crisis.
Label: One evening in summer, we saw countless glow-worms that lit up our entire Viognier vineyard. We were so delighted that we used the glow-worm as the symbol on the label of our organic SOPRA Viognier.
Vinification: Harvested by hand. A vibrating table is used to select the grapes, from vintage 2020 on with an optic sorting machine. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in French barriques (first use) and subsequent malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 12 months in barriques. Afterwards, the wine is bottled (without filtration).
Alcohol content: 13,5 % | Vintage: 2020

The white wine has a strong colour. The bouquet is multi-layered with heady aromas of apricot and peach as well as violet and lily of the valley. The organic Sopra Viognier is classy and characterful with a lingering maturation note. Its lively freshness, deep structure and pronounced lengthy finish make it a complex wine – a natural concentration with minerally freshness.
The wine is versatile and can be served with risotto with spring vegetables or with asparagus. However, it also goes with white meat, poultry, fish and cheese.
Serving temperature: 10°-13°C
