This wine is very pale in its youth, but with time will develop straw and light gold tints.

Stonefruit dominates the nose of this wine; peaches, nectarines, apricots. Mingled with this are floral notes (lemon flower and orange flower) backed by gentle spice notes.

Viognier is a low acid variety so the palate is broad, rich and weighty.

The wine coats the tongue from front to back and side to side and the finish lasts and lasts.

The wine is technically dry, but the fruit character is so strong that it gives the appearance of sweetness.

This adds to the flavour intensity and length.

Vintage 2009 was extraordinarily settled in Gisborne and this allowed us to get stunning flavour development in our Viognier vineyards.
