Mudbrick Vineyard

Mudbrick Vineyard Reserve Viognier 2014 Waiheke Island 14.5%
A bouquet full of oak spice, baked stone fruits and and a sense of place: spice and citrus notes from a moderate French oak, baked, canned and dried apricots, yellow florals and a full rich bouquet overall. On the palate - immediately creamy then spicy then warm then flavors of citrus, stone fruit and oak arrive; medium acidity, medium+ weight; a rounded full style that deserves the right food accompaniment.
