Posted on

Our Falconhead Viognier is the latest recipient of a trophy at this years Air New Zealand wine Awards. Topping the ‘Other Whites and Rose’ category, the judges only had good things to say about this fantastic drop.

“Spice aromas with complex tropical floral notes. Rich, oily palate texture, but with a dry finish. Acid and tannin in harmony adding a refreshing quality.”
-Winning wine citation:Falconhead Viognier 2013

Our Winemakers Will Shields and Leith Ashworth and vineyard manager Pete Scott had a lovely night receiving the award in Auckland. Congratulations again on this fantastic win!
