Bright straw in colour with green hues, the 2017 Y Series Viognier has aromas of orange blossom and fresh ginger, with hints of honeysuckle and white flowers. Fresh pineapple, Chinese white tea and dried figs lead into a creamy mid palate with a silky textural finish.
Drinks perfectly with harissa chicken or crispy rice pancakes with potato and chickpeas.
After harvest the Viognier grapes were gently pressed and the juices handled with controlled oxidation. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks utilising the naturally occurring indigenous vineyard yeasts. The indigenous yeasts create layers of flavour, complexity and richness. After fermentation the wine remained on yeast lees for about three months, increasing the complexity by adding creaminess and palate richness.
