The grand rounded gables of The Wine Portfolio’s Cellar Door are a distinctive feature of the lush green pastures of Katikati, New Zealand.

Since 1978 the estate has been a place where wine making is seen as an art, not just a business. In such a place, Falconhead Hawkes Bay Viognier is carefully made.

New Zealand’s temperate, maritime climate and rich, free-draining volcanic soils have brought new intense flavours and styles to the world wine market. With vineyards in prime locations such as Hawkes Bay and Marlborough.

The Wine Portfolio combines the finest grapes with the best winemaking techniques, as well as passion from their dedicated winemakers.

They have taken the boutique winery approach to winemaking by controlling the entire process – from grafting their own cuttings, developing their own vineyards and viticultural techniques, and investing in the best technology possible.

Owning 503 planted hectres of vineyards, The Wine Portfolio has a secure supply of grapes that are grown specifically to match their wine styles.

The individual pickings of Viognier were pressed and fermented at their Riverview winery, in order to make the Falconhead Hawkes Bay Viognier.

Approximately 35% went to barrel for fermentation and maturation. After 12 months in barrel and tank the wine was blended, with bottling in August 2014.

In the Falconhead Hawkes Bay Viognier, the apricot, musk and orange blossom aromas of this wine are complimented by a hint of vanilla from the barrel. Subtle oak continues to influence the palate combined with a soft acidity.

The palate is full bodied with sweet fruit flavours of pear and apricot.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.
