Viognier Noble Late Harvest 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.  In the vineyard, the grapes developed noble rot and we only harvest when we reach a sugar of 42 Balling.  The grapes were destemmed and pressed.  The juice was inoculated with a yeast strain and fermentation took place for a period of 26 days at a temperature of 15 Celsius.  After fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels for a period of 3 months before bottling.

Cellar Master Comment

Typical noble late characters with flavours of ripe and dried tropical fruit, accompanied with honey and hazelnuts.  This rich, full and rounded wine is complimented with a crisp acidity that cuts through the sweetness.
