Serious viognier

Black Barn Sur Lie Viognier 2015, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $39

Rich, ripe and very appealing viognier with apricot, tree fruit, ginger, spicy oak and lovely brioche-like yeast lees characters. The wine has truly impressive weight and mouthfeel with an equally impressive length. A serious viognier. (Screwcap)
