Dancing Petrel Paewhenua Island Mangonui Northland Viognier 2019 (****½)
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. Michael Cooper.
