Terrace Heights Estate Marlborough Viognier 2010

Viognier from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Apr-2011
The third crop from the Viognier plantings, the fruit whole bunch pressed and fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 6 g/L rs. The wine was given some maturation in seasoned barriques and lees stirring. Brilliant pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, this has an elegant, open-style nose with fresh, lively aromas of herbs and apricots. Dry to taste, this is gentle and immediately accessible with soft apricotty fruit flavours nuanced by herb and nectarine fruit interest. Moderately intense, there is textural dryness through the line, with a little sweetness carrying through the finish. Match with spicy Asian seafood cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Around 100 cases made. 16.5+/20 Apr 2011 RRP $22.95
