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 ‚ÄòLes Arbres‚Äô.
Notes from the Vigneron:
To enhance the ripe warming phenolic structure of this wine we ‚Äòcrunch‚Äô 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 ‚Äòsur lie‚Äô 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‚Äô afternoon. The taste is velvet smooth with a tannin grip showing beautiful harmony across the phenolic structure.
