Askerne Hawke's Bay Viognier (2020)

Offering fine value, the youthful 2020 vintage (4.5*) was fermented and matured in French oak barrels (30 per cent new). A powerful, lush wine, it is full-bodied and sweet-fruited, with rich stone-fruit flavours, oak complexity, gentle acidity, a slightly oily texture and a basically dry finish. Already drinking well, it should be at its best mid-2022+.
