PDF Tasting Notes

"Fragrant aromas of peach, orange blossom and creamy lemon biscuit fill the nose. This wine has a rich mouth feel with a supple palate and refreshing acidity which finishes light and delicate. Our Viognier can be enjoyed now but has great ageing potential. It is a versatile food wine and is great with seafood but can also accompany more intense pairings such as barbecued Quail."
Graham Pierce, Winemaker

"The 2009 growing season started off with a cool spring which resulted in a later than normal bud break. However the cool spring was quickly followed by an exceptional fruit set in June and excellent growing conditions. This enabled rapid vine growth and the vineyard caught up quickly to where it should be. Steady warm and dry conditions graced the valley throughout the summer months and into the fall, which made for an early ripening of the grapes. The result was fruit of first quality, some of the best we have ever seen."
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
