Georges Michel ‘La Reserve’ Marlborough Viognier 2010

Viognier from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Mar-2012
100% Viognier basket pressed and barrel-fermented to 14.2% alc. and 0.25 g/L rs, the wine aged 8 months in new and seasoned oak, with 100% MLF. Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. The bouquet is light and a little shy, but showing classical Viognier exotic florals, apricots and citrus zest aromas, as well as musk and flinty elements. Dry and medium-bodied, precise and detailed flavours of apricots, ginger and musk build to fill the mouth with round textures, the acidity well-balanced lending a freshness and taut line. Some alcohol warmth and generosity is present, and the wine finishes with gentle musk and steely notes. This softly textured and balanced Viognier will be a match with Asian cuisine over the next 2-3+ years. 17.0+/20 Mar 2012 RRP $27.00
