Viognier 2014, De La Terre, Hawkes Bay
Delicate notes of citrus blossom, quince and lychee alongside a seam of flinty minerality on the nose. An elegant and refined balance of ripe, clean flavours and gentle acidity. On the palette, flavours of honey and light citrus dominate with a crisp and long finish.
A small family run business, Tony and Kaye Prichard’s self-built earth-brick winery is a labour of love and is reflective of their passion to create and produce quality products with a personal touch to everything they do. In five hectares of Hawkes Bay vineyards, Tony produces a deliberately small volume of high quality wines with a emphasis on elegance, texture and balance. The Prichards’ devotion to hand-crafting applies to every stage of the de la Terre winemaking process. From fruit picking and gentle handling through hand-pressing, with nothing ever rushed, the integrity of the grape is retained.
