Brookfields Barrique Fermented Viognier 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Viognier from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Nov-2022
Bright, pale yellow-gold, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full with flinty aromas at the entrance, enveloping roasted nut, vanilla, underpinning orchard fruit, stonefruit, floral and spice. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, aromas of nashi pear and peach melded with ginger, cardamom and vanilla, unfolding roasted almond and barrel flint. The wine is youthful with harmonious flavours supported by an elegant line of fresh acidity; complexed barrel fermentation elements provide vitality. Match with baked grouper and chestnut stuffed chicken over the next 8+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in barriques to 14% alc. Vegan friendly. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $27
