Brookfields Barrique Fermented Viognier 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Viognier from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Aug-2020
Bright, medium yellow-straw colour, even throughout. The bouquet is delicate and elegant, nuances of lemon sherbet, apricots, peaches, entwined with orange blossom and spices. Medium-bodied, dry, concentrated fruit aromas of apricots, peaches and lemon sherbet, along with orange zest, orange blossom, ginger spices and toasty oak lingers to a long sustained finish. The mouthfeel has a smoothly seamless flow, on a creamy and oily texture line, compliments the toasty oak and spice elements, with a lacy acid drive. The palate leads to a long finish with creamy barrel notes and stonefruit flavours. This is an elegantly crafted Viognier with flavours of stonefruit, lacy acid drive on a creamy palate. Match with pork loin and chicken over the next 5 years. Fruit from Ohiti Estate. Handpicked, whole-bunch pressed. Fermented in a mix of new and seasoned barriques to 14% alc. Aged on its lees for 10 months. 19-/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $27
