Viognier 2019

Tasting Notes

Our 2019 Viognier is light straw in the glass with floral aromas of jasmine with notes of peach, apricot and a hint of spice. On the palate, it is fresh with acidity and flavours of white peach and passionfruit curd with a savoury finish with lingering spice notes. Drinking well on release but will benefit from short to medium term cellaring to further develop complexities.

WINEMAKING NOTES

After harvest in late September, 50% of the fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented in seasoned French oak (228L, 400L and 500L) while 50% was fermented in stainless steel tanks.  After 8 months, the resulting wines were blended together for added complexity, with the wine from the barrels adding richness and a touch of oak flavour while the stainless steel fermented wine adding fresh fruit character and retention of acidity.  Following final blending, the wine was transferred to stainless steel tanks for light fining and filtration prior to bottling in April 2020.
