Outstanding viognier

Millton Clos Ste Anne Les Arbres Viognier 2015, Gisborne, NZD $58

Rich, weighty and super-smooth viognier with apricot, brioche, star anise and bran biscuit flavours. This pleasingly textural wine is fully ripe while retaining a good balance of acidity and support from very fine tannins. An elegant and complex viognier that ranks as one of this country’s best.
