2019 Maddens Rise Viognier


Estate grown, hand-picked and hand-made.

The grapes (Montpellier clone) were hand-picked then hand-selected over a sorting table prior to whole-bunch pressing. 50% of them were crushed by foot with the remainder whole-bunch crushed to cold soak on skins. After three days, these parcels were pressed together to tank.

Then the cloudy juice was coarsely racked, taking much of the grape solids direct to a single aged French oak puncheon for wild fermentation. The wine was aged on lees for 6 months.

A beautifully balanced wine with ginger, cardamom, crème anglaise, musk and pistachio on the nose. Poached quince and pears, pineapple, vanilla ice cream and oat cakes are evident on the palate. This wine has a lovely mouth feel. It has warmth and a silky texture, with lovely length of flavour.
