Viognier 2019 4.5 star

Seductive - Smooth - Silky. Barrel Fermented and golden with apricot and pear flavours shining through. Subtle hints of citrus add vibrancy and freshness.

Michael Cooper says "Dancing Petrel Paewhenua Island Mangonui Northland Viognier 2019 This youthful, softly mouthfilling wine was hand-harvested at a coastal vineyard in the Far North and barrel-aged.  Pale straw, it is powerful, with concentrated, ripe flavours of peaches and pears, biscuity notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and a dry, long finish.  Best drinking 2022."
