Wines Vintage
 
 

Vintage 2012 saw approximately 60% of the fruit gently pressed directly to barrels, with the remaining 30% being pressed in a stainless steel tank. The juice was handled with passive oxidation, allowing the wine to ferment with indigenous yeasts, natural to the vineyard.

The wine was left on lees, and underwent regular batonnage for 10 months to increase the complexity and creaminess of the wine and further heightened the palate weight.

The 2012 Eden Valley is the pure essence of what Viognier is all about. Apricot fruit aromas and flavours with long luscious texture and hints of orange oil to finish.

Pure aromas of apricot nectar, lifted honeysuckle and orange oil perfume. Long, rich and luscious palate with intense stone fruit - particularly apricots - finishing with an alluring citrus freshness.

A wonderful food wine - try it with Moroccan Tagine.
