2017 Premium Viognier
A very special variety. Viognier is categorised as an “aromatic”. Naturally textural and soft Viognier is often popular among both white and red wine drinkers.
Originally we planted a small amount of Viognier to be a blending component for Syrah. Over the last couple of years there has been a focus on improving the quality of the Viognier. As a result we believe this is our best to date.
This single vineyard Viognier was fully barrel fermented, to assist with a full bodied wine.
80% went through a secondary fermentation – Malolactic fermentation.
The wine was bottled after 10 months, lees stirred weekly, in seasoned French oak Barriques to allow optimum maturation, to preserve the primary fruit flavours.
Colour: Dried Straw
Aroma: White peach, Floral, Spice, Pineapple.
Palate: Generous mouthfeel, Lush Peach, Well structured, very clean dry finish
Very versatile, Viognier is a great option for a BYO restaurant. Great with Spicy food, Viognier works well with fresh dishes too.
Drink now or cellar up to 7 years.
Aromas of freshly picked apricots and sweet spice. This wine is lush with summer fruit sweetness, floral and perfumed.
