Elephant Hill SEA Viognier 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Viognier from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 09-May-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green sheen. The nose is soft, with aromas of citrus, apricot, peach and subtle spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of peach and apricot melded with white petals, lemon and ginger. Stony minerals adorn the texture; acid tension persists with fruit and spice to a crisp, long finish. This Viognier possesses tension and a mineral core; spices elevate the finish. Match with snapper and linguine vongole over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from Te Awanga, handpicked, fermented in tank and barrel without MLF. 17% oak aged for 11 months and a further 6 months on light lees. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) May 2024 RRP $34
