Trophy & Double Gold NZ International Wine Show 2020
93 Points, 5 Stars Wine Orbit. They said…
“Light gold in hue with a bright-fruited, sweet-scented, delicately floral bouquet. It’s full-bodied in the palate with classically varietal flavours of apricots and spice supported by honeysuckle florals, subtle savoury oak and refreshing acidity.” NZIWS 2020
"It’s gorgeously fruited and complex on the nose, showing apricot, mango, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters. The palate delivers excellent weight and richness, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and juicy acidity. Generous and highly appealing. At its best: now to 2023."
"Ripe, fragrant apricot and tropical fruit aromas, spice and toasty oak characters feature on the nose. This is a luscious Viognier with lovely ripe fruit characters with a full-bodied dry palate. This wine continues the characters of the successful run of Askerne Viogniers since 2010."
