2020 Piwakawaka Vineyard Viognier


This Viognier (vee-on-yay) from Gisborne is grown by Steve & Kristin Parkes. Viognier is a grape native to France's Rhone Valley, this warm dry region typically produces full bodied, rich whites that sometimes taste ‘cloying’ and make it difficult to get through the bottle. This Kiwi counterpart, grown organically on a 2-ha ‘backyard’ vineyard, is anything but, picked early to retain acid and freshness; it's an atypical version of Viognier, though none the less, it's simply delicious, not to mention seasonally appropriate. Medium bodied, with Viognier's signature apricot and honeysuckle, but with the volume turned down. A really smart wine.
