100% Viognier from Saint Clair’s vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district of Hawke’s Bay.
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness, gently pressed, and the must settled. Fermentation took place in stainless tanks with carefully selected yeast to enhance the varietal characters. The wine was left on the yeast lees, imparting texture and complexity.
An elegant wine displaying prominent notes of peach, apricot kernel and fragrant orange blossom laced with impressions of spice. Rich and textured on the palate, this complex Viognier delivers flavours of apricot, burnt orange, savoury pastry and French fruit tart. A weighty mid-palate leads to a subtle spicy note on the finish.
