Wine: de la terre Viognier 2012
Vineyard: Omahu Road, Hastings
Wine Style:
Winemaker’s Notes: 2012 was a very cold, wet vintage so the winemaking style and methods used for this wine were altered significantly to suit the conditions. The fruit was handled very protectively to create a tropical fruit spectrum with a fresh and balanced acidity.
Tasting Notes: There are definitive tropical elements of pineapple with a hint of banana ester on the nose, while the palate has an immediate attack of fresh tropical fruit flavours with a long clean and dry finish.
