Winemaker Comments

The 2014 Viognier was hand harvested from our coastal Te Awanga vineyard. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed and fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and oak puncheons. The wine remained on light lees for six months prior to bottling. A fresh viognier showing classic varietal characteristics of nectarine and apricot. It is dry, medium-bodied and the palate balances richness with fine acidity.
