Fairview Viognier. Bright gold. Honey, stone fruit and typical spring blossom floral aromas balanced with subtle of oak aromas. Rich complex palate with layers of waxy honeycomb, apricots and orange followed by a charming creamy finish.
The grapes were hand-picked early morning and whole bunch pressed. Only the free run juice was used. 60% of the Viognier was fermented in stainless steel tanks and 40% was fermented in French oak barrels (30% new). After fermentation, the wine was left to mature sur lie, with regular stirring (battonage). The wine was racked off the lees and the components blended prior to filtration and bottling.
