Viognier 2017

A PASSION FOR PERFECTION

Winemaking

This wine consists of only one cultivar, Viognier. The grapes were handpicked and grapes were selected out of our best block of Viognier.  The grapes came in at 23 Balling, were destemmed and pressed.  The juice was inoculated with a yeast strain and fermentation took place for a period of 20 days at a temperature of 14 degrees Celsius.  After fermentation, the wine was transferred to new French oak barrels for a period of 5 months.  After maturation the wine was prepared for bottling.

Cellar Master Comment

This pale golden wine is full of fruitiness.  On the nose, you will find flavours of dried peach, pawpaw, citrus and some caramel flavours.  The wine matured in barrels on its fine lease for 5 months which give it a rounded mouthfeel and leaves you with a taste that lingers.  Maturation potential 3-5 years.
