Production

Grapes are sourced from the Worcester area, where a continental climate brings very cold winters that enable vines to rest before a vigorous summer. Here the vineyards need to be irrigated, but yields are controlled by suckering in November - this ensures the vine's energy is directed to the most important shoots and also to promote good air flow in the canopy. Given the high summer temperatures, the grapes are picked at a good maturity and ripeness using machine harvesters to ensure speed to cellar at cool temperature. Careful winemaking results in terrific varietal expression and freshness.

Tasting notes

A ripe, full flavoured palate packed with jasmine and white spice, this is tight, focused and rich Viognier with all the classic varietal flavours.

Food match

Fish, chicken and spicy Asian inspired dishes.
