Passage Rock Reserve Waiheke Island Viognier (2020)

Still very youthful, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and barrel-matured. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a powerful, sturdy wine, slightly Chardonnay-like at this stage, with strong, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, a gently seasoning of oak, fresh acidity, and excellent complexity and potential. Open 2023+.
