Our Viognier is a great food wine which will pair well with rich pasta, chicken and pork dishes.
It’s made from grapes grown on a vineyard is situated on the mid-section of our farm, on a North Western Slope where the soil is dominated by gravel.
Viognier is quite unique with berries that shrivel towards full ripeness. Sampling and tasting the fruit during ripening is of utmost importance to end up with a balance between fruit, alcohol and structure.
We handpick and de-stalk the grapes, press them immediately, then settle and inoculate them with two different yeast cultures and ferment 30% of the fruit in barrels.
The result is a wine with rich, intense aromas and tastes of white flowers, ripe fleshy peaches, apricots and dessicated pineapple followed through on the palate with an undertow of soft, buttery oak barrel flavours.
Drink now or within the next three years.
