PDF Tasting Notes

“The 2013 Viognier is bright and crisp with tropical notes of pineapple and mango backed by floral and honey notes on the nose, the palate is dominated by apricot and nectarine, with accompanying expressions of lemongrass and honey. Great on its own, you can also try pairing it with a refreshing Asian pear salad or grilled Halibut with mango salad.”
Graham Pierce, Winemaker

“The 2013 growing year proved to be exceptional. Starting off early, the season remained about 2 weeks ahead of most previous years all summer. With an abundance of sunshine and moderate temperatures the season was ideal throughout veraison and all the way to harvest which gave us an excellent, lenghty ripening period. An almost perfect vintage, this one will be 'a vintage to remember'.”
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
