This is a real 'hidden gem' and represents one of the best valued dry whites in our range. Throw out any Viognier prejudices and try this. We think you'll like it.

As with all of The Crater Rim Wines, this viognier is made with all the bells and whistles you would expect of a wine at much higher price. Hand-picked, gentle skin contact, fermented in new and seasoned French Oak, full malolactic fermentation and extended aging on lees results in a beautifully textured viognier that feels well composed. Beautiful fleshy stone fruits with a subtle spice note carries to an unctuous finish.

Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine was sourced from a sustainably managed hillside vineyard in the Omihi Hills. Naturally low cropping this site delivers a rich textural Viognier. Clay based, limestone rich hillside vineyard. The fruit was hand picked and de stemmed with 6 hours of skin contact prior to pressing. The wine was then fermented in new and seasoned French oak barrels. 100% malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in the spring. Finally, it is aged for 8 months on lees before bottling without fining."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Varietally pure and delightfully fragrant, showing apricot, fig, subtle spice and rich floral aromas on the nose, followed by a supple palate that’s plump and fleshy. It’s beautifully ripe and flavoursome with a lengthy silky finish. At its best: now to 2025."

The Crater Rim takes its name from the twin craters of the ancient Akaroa and Lyttelton volcanos. Eruptions from these majestic landforms in ages past gifted the surrounding land with an enduring fertility.

The Crater Rim's first yineyard was planted above Akaroa township and the significance of this location in terms of its climatic effect on the whole region of Canterbury meant this brand would extend to include plantings in additional sub-regionsof Waipara, Omihi and Banks Peninsula and Central Otago.

Waipara, in North Canterbury's hills, is now the home base for The Crater Rim where specific sub-regional terriors contribute to the wines produced on their vineyards. Exceptional Pinot Noir is produced at The Crater Rim's winery site, Omihi Rise, also in North Canterbury. The Frahar Vineyard in Waipara also supplies Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

The Crater Rim is a frequent recipient of awards, including multiple medals in the New World Wine Awards and regular reviews by Sam Kim of Wine Orbit.
