Villa Maria Cellar Selection Viognier 2016
Pale gold coloured with a sweet mealy scent infused with creamed nuts and apricot nectar. Quite shy on the nose but powerful and heady in the palate. The mouthfeel is rounded with glycerolic smoothness and weight and the taste is balanced and harmonious with soft acidity, hints of vanilla and the brightness of spiced peaches and apricots on the lifted and lingering finish. A blend of Hawkes Bay and Gisborne (40%) grapes.
