Vineyard

Campo dos Robles (field of two oaks) Vineyard is Campovida’s estate Viognier block which is CCOF organic certified. The Bonofiglio Vineyard is an organically farmed, seven-acre vineyard located five miles north of the town of Hopland. Both vineyard sites are located along the banks of the upper Russian River, where the gravelly loam soils provide ideal sites for growing worldclass Rhone white wines.

Harvest notes

The 2014 harvest season was marked by a severe drought throughout California, with only some rain in spring that helped save the year. This is also considered to be the earliest harvest season in over a decade, as well as avery condensed one, with sparkling wine production beginning in July and still wine finishing by mid-October.  Even with all the obstacles put in place by nature, the quality of the wines is as high as the last two vintages for many varietals.  Small berries played a big role as they brought more density and intensity of flavors to the finished wines.

Winemaker’s notes

A very complex nose with different layers derived from each of its individual components. Roussanne contributes notes of honeydew melon and freshly cut herbs, while Marsanne contributes notes of marzipan and magnolia, and Viognier adds notes of honey and apricot.  The palate is well balanced and shows roundness and texture for a long-lasting finish that is uplifted by crispness from the natural acidity.
