VIGNERON

2014 Viognier
Gisborne

Currently on sale to encourage more of you to give Viognier (Vee-on-yah) a try!

Our 2014 Viognier is quite special, a big wine that reflects the season. Thrilled to receive a 5 star rating from Raymond Chan. You can check out his comments on his website. www.raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz

The wine style is modeled on traditional Viognier whose home is Condrieu in the Rhone Valley of France. Barley straw, freshly baled hay slowly developing a golden hue with three years bottle age, with an aroma of dried apricot, jasmine, roast hazelnut, vanilla bean and orange zest. In the mouth, it’s all bottled apricots with cream, mixed peel and almond.

This is a complex wine with layers of stone fruits, flowers, toasty oak and spice. The palate sensation is big, textural and oily yet focused, and easily matches the 14.4 % alcohol. The wine delivers Gisborne’s bold elegance with a rich and savory finish.
