Of all varieties in NZ, Viognier is one we've struggled to get right stylistically. But Te Mata have led from the start and now they are writing the textbook in liquid form. Gentle surges of seamless, slightly unctuous, peachy florals...need we go on? Just rich enough and yet perfectly restrained too - and fresh - and concentrated...From old vines, this is the one to beat in $30 Kiwi Viognier. Try it with a fancy dinner of rabbit or a South East Asian takeout.

Viognier

Its Origins

Hawke’s Bay is a very special place for making wine. Its range of slopes, plains and climatic differences, coupled with low humidity and ample ultra-violet light, give winemakers a comprehensive toolkit to showcase their skills. Soils are young and derived from the gravels, silt and sands left behind as the three main rivers of Hawke’s Bay changed course over thousands of years. Te Mata Estate was established here in 1896 specialising in high-quality wines of classical style. The estate was purchased by the Buck and Morris families in the mid 70's, who were influenced by the great wines of France, with Peter Cowley coming on as winemaker in 1984. Peter and viticulturist Larry Morgan have moved the estate into high-quality, self-reflective, low yield winemaking with a focus on sustainable farming. Although Te Mata are mainly known now for the Coleraine, the Bullnose Syrah was called the New World's best red by Steven Spurrier.
