The fruit for this wine was grown on the lower terraces of Askerne Vineyard.
The fruit was handpicked then whole bunch pressed. After settling it was racked to barrel. 100% of the juice was barrel fermented. 20 % new French oak with the balance one to three years old. A mixture of wild and inoculated ferments. A considerable proportion of the barrels went through malolactic fermentation. It was in barrel for 9 months.

Ripe, fragrant apricot and tropical fruit aromas, spice and toasty oak characters feature on the nose. This is a luscious Viognier with lovely ripe fruit characters with a full-bodied dry palate. This wine continues the characters of the successful run of Askerne Viogniers since 2010.
