PALATE

Gently sweet, at around 35g/L of residual sugar, exploding on the middle palate with musk & stone fruit flavours, spicy characteristics with some acidity balancing the refreshing finish.

VINTAGE

2015 was a mild growing season, dry & cool with an excellent sunny & warm January, February & March, ideal for ripening the grapes on the old viognier vines for a late harvest style.

WINEMAKING

Harvested at around 300g/L sugar, and pressed to stainless steel tank for a cool, long fermentation which was stopped when the balance of alcohol and residual sugar seemed ideal.
The wine was then matured in old barriques to develop the heady aromatic characteristics typical of off-dry viognier.
