2018 Viognier

Viognier

Vintage
2018
 

From a small 2.9 acre block at Kobau Vineyard on the Golden Mile bench, this elegant, mineral-driven Viognier benefits from retained freshness due to the vineyard's cooler afternoons. This wine brings honeysuckle and lilac notes on the nose and mandarin orange flavour on the palate accompanied by a supple textural mouthfeel.

Winemaker Notes
A cool start to spring resulted in a slightly later than average bud break. However ideal flowering conditions were possible thanks to warmer temperatures and dry conditions in late spring. Summer was warm allowing for continued fruit development. And the classic long, dry and sunny fall conditions in October really helped with increased flavour development and acidity retention. Harvest 2018 was longer than usual due to the unique conditions experienced during the growing season, nevertheless a promising one.
Vineyard Notes
The southerly aspect of the Kobau vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench allow the vines to bask in the early morning sun. On gravelly soils, wines from this vineyard are known for being mineral-driven, well structured, with a balanced ripeness and fresh acidity.
