Overview

The hand-picked grapes come exclusively from our clay rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard in the Omaka Valley of Marlborough. The Viognier is cropped at very low levels; each vine is thinned to carry one bunch per shoot or less. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked in on 21 April at approximately 24.5o Brix.

Expert Reviews

Coming from Seresin’s Raupo Creek Vineyard, the 2010 Viognier was fermented with wild yeast in two 500L French oak puncheons (one puncheon was new) and aged for 8 months. It is intensely perfumed of honeysuckle and frangipani over a core of ripe apricots, acacia honey, spicy poached pears and coriander seed. Full bodied and with a silky texture, it has a great line of refreshing acidity balancing out the richness and giving lift throughout the long finish. Drinking beautifully now, it should keep to 2015+. Rating 91 - Drink 2011 - 2015 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker.com #197 Oct 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose displays aromas of nectarines and spice with floral notes and subtle hints of seasoned oak.

Palate

The palate is delicate yet concentrated, with flavours of green mango, oatmeal and beeswax notes. The generous palate and fine acidity provide length to the spicy dry finish.

Cellaring

This is drinking well now but has the potential to improve over the next five years.
