Bright, twinkling pale straw, this wine offers decadent aromas of nectarine essence, delicate jasmine, and honey. The silky palate offers flavours of golden nectarine and ripe apricot drizzled with manuka honey. The warming finish leaves the mouth savouring honey and sweet citrus.


Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy

After a superb season, pristine bunches of Viognier were harvested in the cool morning and then quickly transported to the winery. There the fruit was crushed and destemmed before being gently pressed to release the decadently ripe juice. After slight clarification by settling, the intensely flavoured opalescent juice was transferred to another tank for cool fermentation. Aromatic yeast and carefully monitored ferment temperature ensured that this Viognier expresses all of the delicate, vibrant aromas and flavours inherent to this wonderful variety. Prior to bottling, this wine was gently fined with traditional proteins to perfect the palate experience.

Cellaring Recommendation
