Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Clos de Ste. Anne is a single vineyard situated on steep northeast facing slopes in the foothills of Poverty Bay. The 2014 Viognier comes from a section of vineyard in the lie of the forest that we fondly call ‘Les Arbres’.
In order to enhance the ripe warming phenolic structure of this type of wine we ‘crunch’ the whole clusters of grapes, together with the stems, and press over an extended period. This, together with the winemaking style, allows the wine to sit in the far corner of your mouth and stimulate a sense of deliciousness to the palate. Warm fermentation in 600 litre demi-muid barrels, together with complete malo-lactic fermentation and a 'sur lie' ageing gives the wine a sense of warmth.
This vintage has the saline structure of sake with a spectrum of aromas of caramel, baked pears,apple tart and sombre notes of starchy rice paper, warm leather, a hint of fennel, liquorice and aniseed. Think Umami.
The texture gives warmth to these aromas like a satin sheet. It is cosy and relaxed, walking on a crunchy shingle pathway through a flower garden on a summers' afternoon. The taste is velvet smooth with a tannin grip showing beautiful harmony across the phenolic structures; it dances across the palate leaving a savoury umami saline sensation of deliciousness."
