High Canyon Series


Aged 9 months in neutral oak. Light bâtonnage for first 3 months.


From a very steep, densely planted block near the top of the High Canyon portion of WeatherEye.

Winemaker’s Notes

Intensely aromatic and complex on the nose with notes of honeysuckle, waxy white peach, green apple, earthy vanilla, fresh hawthorn, and hints of jasmine, tarragon, and mace. The palate shows a great tension between palate-coating richness and mouth-watering acidity, with a lot of Asian pear, crunchy Snow Queen nectarine, exotic white flowers, walnut oil, and hints of oyster shell. Long and floral on the finish, this wine is extremely complex and interesting for drinking over the next 5 or so years.

Scores & Reviews



From a vineyard with a burgeoning cult following, this Viognier shows nuance and freshness, balancing plenty of depth. Aromas of white hawthorn flowers balanced against notes of Spanish olive skin and almond notes. The palate is fresh and lively, yet plenty phenolic. Flavours of pear skin, savoury herbs, and seaspray make way for roasted almond flavours and a depth of intensity on the finish accented by grilled lemon peel.

- Clive Pursehouse, Decanter



While the potential for reds was obvious at WeatherEye before the first vines were planted, it’s the whites that have brought the greatest intrigue. Aged nine months in neutral oak with light bâttonage for the first three months, the aromas here offer initially subdued notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, fresh and dried herb, and white peach. The stone fruit flavors bring intensity and focus while remaining exquisitely balanced. The finish sails. It’s a complete standout offering of this variety.

- Sean Sullivan, Northwest Wine Report



More of a whisper than a shout, but with much to say, the 2021 Viognier WeatherEye Vineyard High Canyon Series blossoms with raw almond, white flowers and candied ginger, complementing vivid apricot and lime aromas. Silky and enveloping, this washes across the palate in creamy textural waves showing ripe orchard fruits and candied citrus tones. The 2021 becomes mineral through the finale, leaving the mouth watering as savory spice nuances slowly fade. This is an outstanding interpretation of Viognier from one of the Red Mountains' most exciting locations.

- Eric Guido, Vinous



Pure, fresh and vibrant, the 2021 Viognier WeatherEye Vineyard is aromatic and delights with lively floral notes before hints of cereal grains and sautéed apples waft from the glass. The palate embraces almond skin flavors with a broad texture and succulent mouthfeel before a kiss of phenolic bitterness dances across the long, food-friendly finish, enhancing the wine's complexity. Give it a try. This Viognier aged nine months in neutral French oak.
