Leveret Estate Hawkes Bay Viognier


Vintage 2015
On the nose, this wine has aromas of peach, nectarine and dried apricots with a hint of smokiness.  On the palate, apricot and white peach and nectarine on the finish.

Winemaking:
The grapes for this wine were machine harvested and transported to our Riverview winery where they were pressed with a fraction of the juice going to barrel for fermentation and the remainder being fermented in stainless steel. A variety of yeasts were used but mainly QA23 and Prelude.  Following maturation in both oak and stainless, the wine was blended and tankered to our Katikati winery for final finishing and bottling. The wine was bottled on 7th September 2016.

 

 

 

VINTAGE 2015

“Classic aromas of tropical fruit, potpourri and mixed spice lead to a sumptuous palate that’s plush and lingering”.
Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2016

“Offering fine value, the 2015 vintage (4.5 stars) was fermented and matured for a year in seasoned oak barrels. Bright, light yellow/green, it is floral, fleshy, sweet-fruited and soft, with mouthfilling body and vibrant, peachy flavours, a very subtle oak influence, and a dry, harmonious finish.”
Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide 2018
