Falconhead Hawke's Bay Viognier (2021)

Offering top value, the 2021 vintage (3.5*) is already enjoyable. A weighty, robust wine, it has generous, ripe, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, a touch of barrel-ferment complexity, and a fresh, dryish (5.4 grams/litre of residual sugar), seductively smooth finish.
