ORIGIN OF VARIETAL
Orange blossom, with a complex yet subtle marmalade spice and mineral edge. Structured with vibrant and racy acidity, the palate shows a lovely and delicate ginger spice with fleshy stone fruit and a striking mineral edge.
Whole bunches of viognier fruit were hand-picked at 11.2 Baume and gently pressed to minimise phenolic pick-up.
The juice was cold settle for two days in tank, before racking to old barrique barrels for natural fermentation. The wine was fermented completely dry via indigenous yeast and matured on lees for 9 months.
Bottled on the 14th December with a loose polish of filtration. No new oak was used in this blend, with oak ranging from 2-5 years old.
