Our first Viognier under the Terroir (reserve) label is a fully dry, rich, complex wine. While Viognier often appeals by those who enjoy Chardonnay, it has its own unique character with minerality, peach, pear and apple along with white flowers.
A complex wine with aromas and flavours of lychee, tamarind, melon, pear, apple, white flowers, clove and cinnamon which balance its pleasant acidity. Smooth, round finish. Best serving temperature 7 to 10 C.
Only Strewn’s second Viognier, 2016 exceeded the quality of the inaugural 2015 vintage. Harvested during the morning hours early October, the fruit was pressed to a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank for ferment. A specialized yeast was selected for the fermentation, maintained around 11-12C for just under 3 weeks, down to dryness.
