Summary

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.

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.
