Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
The 2012 Viognier has an apricot, mango and ripe melon-scented nose with suggestions of allspice, straw, fennel and crushed stones. Light to medium-bodied, there is a pleasant creaminess to the texture with just enough spiciness to give interest to the gregarious tropical flavors, finishing with good length.
Crushed and foot-stomped on skins for 2 hours, pressed, cooled and straight to barrel with solids for 10 months maturation. It has bountiful apricot, peach and vanilla varietal fruit achieved without phenolics, but with fresh acidity cleaning the finish, oak a means, not an end. But, oh that bloody cork.
