2022 Sutton Grange Estate Viognier


96 Points
2024 Halliday Wine Companion

This wine is the pinnacle expression from our Sutton Grange farm. Aromas of fresh citrus and orange rind. The mouth-feel is medium bodied, with peach and apricot hints. The tight core balances the concentration in the palate with a phenolic texture on the finish.

Sourced from the lowest twenty rows of Sutton Grange Winery’s 2002 planted Viognier block. Cooler and sheltered, this section is frost-prone, but produces a low crop of concentrated fruit from well balanced, spur pruned vines.

Whole bunch pressed and cold settled before racking to 100% concrete for wild fermentation and 6 months maturation on gross lees. Bottled Oct 2022
