Winemaker's Notes

100% Viognier with a soft golden hue and a nose rich with peaches and cream, and ripe apricots dusted with icing sugar. An elegant entry supported by a crisp acidity gives delicate weight but huge flavours of pineapples and pears with dried apricots on the finish. 60% of the grapes were fermented in French oak barrels and the other 40% in stainless steel tanks. The portion in barrel spent 2 months on the primary lees for a creamy texture, and was left to mature for a further 3 months in barrel before it was blended with the stainless steel tank portion prior to bottling.
