This vintage has the saline structure of sake with a spectrum of aromas of caramel, baked pears, apple tart and sombre notes of starchy rice paper, warm leather, a hint of fennel, liquorice and aniseed. Think Umami.
Clos de Ste. Anne is a single vineyard situated on steep northeast facing slopes in the foothills of Poverty Bay. The 2014 Viognier comes from a section of vineyard in the lie of the forest that we fondly call ‘Les Arbres’.
