Black Barn ‘R&D’ Hawke’s Bay Viognier ‘Sur Lie’ 2015

04-Apr-2017
Black Barn is an artisan winegrower with 10 ha of estate vineyards in Havelock North. Winemaker Dave McKee makes mainly very high quality Chardonnay and Bordeaux varietal wines, with forays into other varietals and styles, sometimes employing fruit from neighbouring vineyards. When trialling new techniques, the wines come under the ‘R&D’ range. (Click here to see my review of the ‘Orange’ wine from 2016). These wine are sold only at the cellar door due to their tiny volumes. Here, I review the ‘Sur Lie’ Viognier 2015, given extended time on lees, with a low sulphur addition of over 50 ppm and bottled without fining or filtration. www.blackbarn.com
