Waimea Estates Viognier

Very typical to Viognier this wine has a perfume of apricot, peach and orange blossom, with just a hint of clean white smoke. The wine is both flavoursome and textural, the essence of these fruits seeming to linger on the palate. This fleshy wine is afforded an elegance thanks to a fine phenolic and mineral thread that runs through the wine. Very moreish! Try with a Moroccan dish of lamb shanks and dried apricots or as an aperitif with walnut crackers, a ripe blue cheese and quince paste.

This Viognier has ripe apricot, papaya and allspice characters along with a gentle acidity and a lush silky texture. Enjoy this wine with Roast Pork and Baked Apple.
