Tasting Notes

Colour: This wine is very pale in its youth, but with time will develop straw and light gold tints.
Bouquet: Very typical Viognier aromas of peach and apricot blossom and ripe stonefruit. Along with this there is a degree of complexity that we seldom see in New Zealand wines. We use the wines of Condrieu as our benchmark for this variety and aromatically this wine is trending in that direction.
Palate: This is a big rich wine. Like all good Viognier, the palate is very broad and very long. There is a strong core of fruit sweetness running all the way through the wine.

Viognier does not seem to require long cellaring. We expect that this wine will drink well on release and into the medium term.

Food Matches
Rich, weighty and complex it is a great match to white meats and salads.

Cook County was the early 20th Century name for the entire East Cape region. We have used handpicked, whole bunch pressed fruit from Delwyn and Doug Bell’s vineyard in Hexton to craft our 2016 SV Viognier. Delwyn and Doug are meticulous in the vineyard and they were assisted by a favourable growing season. The fruit was harvested in the morning and then chilled before trucking to Auckland for processing. The wine was tank fermented and then stayed in tank for a number of months on lees. It was bottled on 6 December 2016.
