K Vintners Powerline Viognier 2019
K Vintners Powerline Viognier has a pale gold colour. Alluring perfume of honeysuckle, apricot, white peach, wisteria and a sprinkle of magic. Lively and rich on the palate, which exhibits terrific elegance. Rich Fuji apple, lemon crème and cantaloupe melon flavours with a mineral streak. A satisfying experience.
100% Viognier. The fruit comes from vines that grow in a 30-acre estate vineyard that has an altitude of over 365 metres. Powerline Vineyard was planted in 2012 in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, just south of Walla Walla in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The soil is well-draining with cobblestone river rocks and underlying layers of sand and gravel deposits, allowing the vines to penetrate deep into the soil with strong roots. The vineyard is farmed using the most up-to-date sustainable practices.
The fruit is hand-picked and foot-stomped. 100% whole cluster fermentation with native yeasts, 48 days on skins and basket pressing. The wine ages on lees for 28 months in 40% new French oak puncheons.
