Kaesler Viognier is better known around the winery as “Steve’s Love Child,” as it is our winemaker, Stephen Dew’s favourite white variety. It is made from estate grown fruit.
Fruit was whole bunched pressed with the pressing included on the 13th February 2013. Half of the Juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks, the balance was done in barrel all with 100% wild yeast and left on lees for 10 months. The wine was matured in French oak barriques, 25% new and the remainder 2 & 3 year old oak. The wine remained in oak for 16 months, before bottling on the 15th July 2014.
White stone fruits and hints of spice.
Rich, full fruit flavour with spicy cinnamon and clove notes.
Enjoy in its youth or cellar for up to 10 years.
