The Viognier

The Viognier

This wine is made of 100% Viognier grapes coming all from our Estate. The wine is full bodied, creamy, rich and complex. With a dark straw colour this wine entices you to explore. On the nose it’s filled with buttery/vanilla notes, peach blossoms and apricots. The palate is filled with seamlessly integrated buttery and fresh fruit flavours.

  • Winemaking

    After harvesting the grapes, the juice is put into French oak barrels and here the wine is fermented and aged for 6 months. On a weekly basis the wine was batonnaged to give a rich and complex mouth feel. After 6 months all of the barrelled components are tasted and then the best two barrels are kept aside to be aged for a further 6 months.

  • Pairing

    Paired with lightly curried fish, buttered chicken, veal with morels or medium matured hard cheeses.

  • Storability

    Nice to drink now and can age up to 10 years. After 5 years the wine develops a different aromatic.

  • Price Range

    $$$
