This expressive viognier seduces you with the beautiful perfume of honeysuckle and orange blossom and a textured palate of apricot, kiwi and pineapple. A sensual and exotic experience. Barrel fermented and aged. Enjoy it now or allow it to gain complexity with further cellaring.
The grapes were picked and whole bunch pressed, slowly extracting the juice at a rate of 600ltrs per ton. The juice was settled for 24 hours and was racked into multi format barrels, and 15% in concrete egg shaped tanks for fermentation and maturation Only indigenous yeasts were used for fermentation and aging lasted 11 months before bottling.
Wine Making Aesthetic:
Balance is the key to this wine. Viognier is an aromatic and generous varietal; it benefits from barrel maturation and lees contact with a fuller mouth feel and increased texture. This combined with the firm acid backbone and intense fruit will allow this wine to integrate beautifully and gain further complexity over the next 3-5 years.
