Saint Clair Origin Viognier 2018

The grapes for the Origin Viognier are grown on Saint Clair's vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels region of Hawkes Bay, located in New Zealand's North Island. The 10 year old vines are planted on the stoniest part of the vineyard which provides ideal conditions for growing Viognier. The grapes are harvested in the cool of the night, preserving the varietal characteristics, pressed and the must settled. Fermentation took place in stainless tanks with carefully selected yeast to enhance the varietal characters. The wine was left on the yeast lees imparting texture and complexity to the resulting wine. The Saint Clair Origin Viognier is an elegant wine displaying prominent notes of peach, nectarine and fragrant stone fruit blossom laced with impressions of juniper and cilantro spice. Rich and creamy on the palate this complex Viognier delivers flavours of ripe peach and nectarine, with lifted notes of lemon zest adding freshness and subtle spicy notes on the finish.
