Viognier 2021

Tasting Notes

Our 2021 Viognier is pale straw in the glass with aromas of peach blossoms and wet stone. On the palate it is light and lively with refreshing acidity and flavours of orange water, peach and apricot pit. The finish is dry and mineral-tinged with notes of white pepper

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 2021.
