Cold Heaven Cellars

Cold Heaven Cellars My mission and goal as a winemaker is to illuminate and define Viognier, to elevate its profile and explore its potential through keen observation and copious tasting. I seek to sound the depths of this enigmatic grape, to reveal its secrets and shine a bright light on the extraordinary fruit grown in the cool vineyards of the Santa Maria and Santa Ynez Valleys of California 's Central Coast. The Cold Heaven website lets you buy your favorite Cold Heaven wines and have them shipped directly to you. Join the Cold Heaven Wine Club to get access to an even wider selection of vintages, discounted offerings, and special events. Whether you are already a fan of Viognier and Cold Heaven, or simply seeking to learn more about my wines, I hope you enjoy your visit.

  Deux C Viognier
Condrieu, France (50%) and Santa Barbara County (50%). There is so much misunderstanding about the true nature of Viognier and its historic winegrowing area of Condrieu in France's Rhone Valley. Cold Heaven's Morgan Clendenen, and Yves Cuilleron, owner and winemaker of Domaine Yves Cuilleron, have created a wine together to demonstrate the uniqueness, and deliciousness, of this noble, exotic grape. This wine also reflects and reveals its origins in Condrieu. Deux C is the culmination of friendship, commitment to Viognier, passion for experimentation, and a dedication to unify something great and rare.
  Le Bon Climat Vineyard
This wine is a treat. Delicate aromas of peach, guava and honey-suckle with hints of straw and springtime orchard flowers. In the mouth, it is soft (butter, Crème Fraiche) and racy (zesty acidity lively on the palate, and crisp like cold green grapes) at the same time. Even worldly pundits rave that it is “one of the most luscious, intense, complex wines one could ever hope to taste” (Parker) and “its scent and flavor have no parallel.” (Johnson).
  Pinot Noir - Le Bon Climat Vineyard
This is the rarest wine of Morgan's production. Life can’t go on without red wine. But this isn’t just any old red, this is a GREAT wine. Morgan's best Pinot to date and from her own vineyard to boot. Lots of cherry, dried rose petals, musk, hints of black tea and sandalwood. A luscious wine. To drink it is to love it. 624 cases produced.
  Viognier - Sanford and Benedict Vineyard
Classic viognier nose of ripe tropical fruits, but nicely defined and spicy, staying well clear of the fruit-pie-in-the-face style. Soft but well-focused attack on the palate, with almost as much grapefruit and lime as mango, banana, and papaya. A bracing minerality keeps the opulence in check and the wine lively on the palate.
  Vogelzang Vineyard
Lush tropical fruits and exotic white flowers overlay an invigorating acidity that keeps the wine fresh and lively. Morgan is very careful with her Viognier harvesting at just that paradoxical moment when both a sylph-like sleekness and a siren's seductiveness share center stage. A lovely wine.
