Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Viognier



Vintage 2020

A very aromatic wine with aromas of ripe apricot, white flowers and a hint of vanilla spice. The palate is full, rich and layered with complexity. Flavours of ripe orchard fruits and honeysuckle complemented with a noticeable sweetness, supported by the elevated alcohol results in a beautifully balanced wine with a long delicious finish.

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.
