Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Viognier


FHVG-V


Vintage 2014

The apricot, musk and orange blossom aromas of this wine are complimented by a hint of vanilla from the barrel. Subtle oak continues to influence the palate combined with a soft acidity. The palate is full bodied with sweet fruit flavours of pear and apricot.

The 2014 vintage offers top value. Barrel-fermented, it is fragrant, mouthfilling (14.5 per cent alcohol), sweet-fruited and smooth, with generous, peachy, slightly buttery and spicy flavours, soft acidity and a well-rounded finish. A good Chardonnay alternative.
