Backsberg Hillside Viognier 2018

Backsberg Hillside Viognier 2018

Exceptionally rich flavours of apricots, peach and lemon with undertones of cinnamon and hazelnut are derived from barrel fermentation. Ageing on the yeast lees has ensured a smooth, creamy texture. An elegant and powerful, aromatic white wine.

Creamy cheeses, curries and strongly flavoured fusion food.

ageing : 8 - 10 years

in the vineyard : Sun worshiping, open armed lyre trellised vines, ensure maximum fruit ripeness, particularly when planted on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in weathered granite and Oak leaf soils.

in the cellar : The fruit is picked quite ripe and late in the season. The clarified juice is then fermented in 225ℓ French oak barrels, where it is stirred often and allowed to stabilise. 100% new oak is used and the wine is left in contact with its lees until bottling, about 4 months later.
