Zara Viognier 2019

Te Mata Estate Zara Viognier 2019

The soft citrine of Zara Viognier ’19 belies its intensely aromatic nature. Floral and fruit notes of orange blossom, apricot, rose and peach, blend with complexing hints of fennel, cashew and barrel char. The luscious palate delivers a finely balanced acidity that extends the wine all the way through its long, salivating, saline finish. Highly refined in both interest and complexity, Zara Viognier ’19 is unashamedly delicious.

 

Zara ’19 is closed with a 'Diam' cork, which eliminates any possibility of cork taint, allowing continued evolution in bottle for five years from harvest.
