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.

WINEMAKING                                                                                                        The individually handled ferments were blended to enhance the wine’s varietal complexity. The finished wine was fined before bottling.

VINEYARDS                                                                                                             On 23 March 2019, fully ripe viognier grapes were hand harvested 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.
