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.
