2016 Pork and Pear

The Pork and Pear is a curious little wine…………

Bear with me while I explain.

Firstly, the wine is a blend of Viognier and Marsanne.

The Viognier was picked in 2015 and aged in oak.

The Marsanne was picked in 2016 and made in stainless steel.

In order to put a vintage on the label a wine has to be at least 85% from that vintage.

This is a Viognier dominant wine, but not to that extent.

So, we haven’t put a vintage on it.

As a wine, the Viognier is the dominant grape. Theres definite dried apricot and characteristic richness from the Viognier. The Marsanne keeps it clean and fresh.

This is a fuller white wine well suited to a white meat dish.
