At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib...

Xanadu Cane Cut Viognier 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Viognier Margaret River Western Australia
Boodjidup Vineyard Viognier, the old growers trick of slicing a cane of bunches off the vine and setting the whole branch aside to dry and shrivel as the berries become engorged with flavour. The deliciously desiccated grapes are crushed and cold soaked to rehydrate the raisined fruit, pressed and sent for a month of vinification at a cool 15°C. Ferments are arrested to retain all the moreish sweetness and extraordinary complexity of cane cut Viognier. Apricot nectars, mango and lychee, her mouth watering lemon honey drop juicyness persists through to a wickedly flavourful finish.
