Dancing Petrel Reserve Paewhenua Island Mangonui Northland Viognier (2020)

From a coastal vineyard in the Far North, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked and barrel-fermented. Fleshy and complex, with a fragrant bouquet, it is weighty, with concentrated, ripe stone-fruit flavours, seasoned with biscuity oak, and a very harmonious, dry, lingering finish. Best drinking 2023+.
