Dry River Viognier 2012

The cooler 2012 vintage has suited the Dry River style of Viognier. The weather provided perfect flavour ripeness at lower sugar levels resulting in an opportunity to produce a dry style with an harmoni- ous alcohol level.

On first appearance the wine reveals a light golden colour and a bril- liant sparkle. The long and extended autumn is reflected in characters of dried apricot, elderflower and hints of lychee. Cherry blossom and harakeke flower form a complex and ethereal aroma. In the mouth the low residual sugar thrusts towards a powerful and dense palate with considerable weight derived from intense fruit concentration. A seamless mouth feel and transparent fruit give this wine an interesting landscape in which to discover an array of stone and citrus fruits. Viognier is often enjoyed as a young wine but in our experience Dry River Viognier can also deliver extra pleasure with careful cellaring.
