The Family Viognier 2013
Gisborne Regional Wine Awards 2014 *Gold + Class Category Winner
NZ International Aromatic Awards 2014 *Silver
When it comes to food matching, Viognier is the King in terms of versatility and flavour.This single vineyard Viognier was grown on the famed Golden Slopes of Hexton in Gisborne. The ripe fruit was hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed, then fermented in old French barriques with post-fermentation battonage. The wine displays elevated fruit notes and bright, lively, well-defined flavours.
On the palate this Viognier shows hints of spice typical of the variety, creamy complexity, and a soft citrus finish.
