Elephant Hill Viognier Te Awanga Hawkes Bay 2016 – $$
13.5% alc. Pale gold colour.
Nose of spice, licorice allsorts, and ripe luscious golden stonefruit and melon. Cheery and fine.
Sweet and dense in the mouth, rich fruit. Long luscious honeyed finish. Flavours of pear and navel orange. Peppery and gritty in character and texture.
