Bright gold, Zara ’14 is unprecedented in its level of complexity and texture. Luscious aromas of white peach and white flowers give way to a soft, flowing palate of exotic mandarin, apricots, hazelnuts with hints of lavender and honeysuckle. Powerful yet restrained, luxurious yet subtle, Zara ’14 fully delivers on New Zealand’s oldest viognier vines and an exceptional Hawke’s Bay vintage. Voluptuous viognier – Zara ’14 is a shining star.

WINEMAKING                                                                                                        The individually handled ferments were blended to enhance the wine’s varietal complexity. The finished wine was fined and bottled in January 2015.

VINEYARDS                                                                                                             On 19 and 27 March 2014, fully ripe viognier grapes were hand harvested in several passes across the sloping, middle terrace of Te Mata Estate’s Woodthorpe Terraces vineyard.

ORIGIN                                                                                                                    Zara is affectionately named after Zara Buck, the first born child of the third generation of Te Mata Estate’s Buck family. Zara spent her childhood playing amongst the vines at the vineyard which is home to this delightful viognier.
