This vintage has the saline structure of sake with aromas of caramel, baked pears, apple tart and warm leather, a hint of fennel, and aniseed. Think Umami.
Clos de Ste. Anne is situated on the steep northeast facing slopes in the foothills of Poverty Bay. The Viognier comes from a section of vineyard in the lie of the forest that we fondly call ‚Äö√Ñ√≤Les Arbres‚Äö√Ñ√¥.
Notes from the Vigneron:
To enhance the ripe warming phenolic structure of this wine we ‚Äö√Ñ√≤crunch‚Äö√Ñ√¥ the whole clusters of grapes and press them over an extended period. This allows the wine to sit in the far corner of your mouth and stimulate a sense of deliciousness to the palate. Warm wild fermentation in 600 litre demi-muid barrels, together with complete malolactic fermentation and ‚Äö√Ñ√≤sur lie‚Äö√Ñ√¥ ageing gives the wine a sense of warmth.

The texture gives warmth to these aromas, like walking on a crunchy shingle pathway through a flower garden on a summers‚Äö√Ñ√¥ afternoon. The taste is velvet smooth with a tannin grip showing beautiful harmony across the phenolic structure.
