Babich ‘Family Estates’ ‘Individual Vineyard – Fernhill’ Hawke’s Bay Viognier 2014

Viognier from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 03-Feb-2015
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with light green hues on edge. This has a fresh, youthfully floral nose with yellow stonefruit and apricot notes, along with subtle, flinty and minerally lees detail adding interest. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with a fine amalgam of apricots, florals and tropical fruits. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing and seamlessly rich, with creamy textures enhancing the fruit richness. A fine core with a drying textural line and discreet acidity balances the palate and the wine follows a fine line, carrying through to a long and sustained finish with apricot elements. This is a fine and elegant Viognier with apricotty flavours, a creamy texture and fine linearity. Match with seafood, poultry and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. Fruit fermented in stainless-steel to 13.7% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5+/20 Jan 2015 RRP $25.00
