Single Vineyard, Limited Release Museum Wine
Paracombe Viognier is a single vineyard release. Paul and Kathy Drogemuller selected the MacGillivray family vineyard in Paracombe as a specialist site for this wine.
The vineyard is east facing enjoying the morning sun for gentle ripening and avoiding the hot afternoon rays.
The grapes for this wine were harvested on the 12th of March 2012. 2012 was the perfect vintage, with ideal ripening conditions which in turn produced fruit to make wonderful wine with highly perfumed aromatics and superb flavour. The yield was plentiful and fruit quality of a high standard.
We chose to release our 2012 Viognier as a museum release thanks its amazing retention of acidity and attractive colour. The aromas and palate alike are generous in flavor with hints of apricot, pineapple and delicate spices.
We have aged this wine in our cool underground cellars for you making it ready to drink now. Some precious wine diamonds have developed thanks to its age and our ecological winemaking.
