Obsidian Waiheke Island Viognier 2010

Viognier from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 14-Sep-2011
Bright, very pale straw yellow with some green hues to the colour, pale on edge. The bouquet is rich and decadent with soft, full aromas of creamy exotic stonefruits, nuts, herbs and vanilla. Dry, powerful and with plenty of alcoholic warmth, this is densely concentrated with creamy peach and ripe apricot flavours, with butternut, nectarine and herb notes, on a soft-textured, low acid, near unctuous palate. A little heat comes through on the finish. Viognier hand-picked and WBP, fermented to 14.0% alc. and aged in seasoned French oak barriques for 10 months with occasional lees stirring. Up-front, weighty and powerful, this creamy textured, exotic wine will match rich seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4+ years. 39 dozen made. 17.5-/20. Sep 2011 RRP $43.00
