This vibrant aromatic wine shows lots of peach and pineapple on the nose. The palate is medium bodied and smooth, complimented with a zesty acid on the finish. The Viognier adds weight and volume to the blend, while the Sauvignon blanc offers freshness and acidity.
Both the Sauvignon blanc and Viognier grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness to ensure complexity of flavour. The Viognier fruit underwent a short period of skin contact before being pressed. After cold settling, the freerun juice was fermented in a stainless steel tank, while the press fraction went into an old barrel. The wine was left on the fine lees for 6 weeks before blending. The blend was lightly fined and only filtered at bottling.
