Wine Note

Magpie Estate 'The Mexican Dancer'

One of our best selling wines over Christmas, we have just recieved another shipment, it's really looking better all the time since we released in last Spring.
It's Magpie's first Viognier! The wine is made by Rolf's sister Christa and as ever I blended the wine with Rolf. It has some oak components which I was very keen on having to give added texture and complexity. 65% is tank fermented and aged, 17.5% in new French oak and 17.5% in two year old French oak bottled after 11 months.
Spicy on the nose with flowery aromatic notes, honeysuckle, lime and white peach. Weighty on the palate, yet really fresh, spicy with lots of citrus and peach, flowery with good acidity. Long with integrated, subtle, nutty oak, creamy too which adds length and complexity to the lovely stone fruits and citrus zest.
It's really quite fresh for Viognier, not at all oily or fat. Don't overchill. 188 dozen produced. NY
