Moana Park Growers' Collection Viognier 2020

While Viognier is grown across the world, its origins can be traced back to the Rhone Valley where it is used both in blends and single varietal expressions. Today it is also grown in the new world and countries like Australia and New Zealand are producing some interesting bottlings. Moana Park Estate, located in the Hawkes Bay, is one of these producers and we think their 2020 is a must try. Fresh, but with a complex body, you can expect notes of yellow peach, melon, lemon, and a touch of jasmine. It’s a great trans-seasonal wine and is a match for a buttery roast chicken, creamy potato bake or stone fruit desert. Drink now.

The Growers’ Collection “creature series” gives the nod to the unique land where Moana Park's grapes are pressed. It features nautical creatures and tales of the sea because the land was after all, for thousands of years, nutrient dense seabed, raised from the ocean during the Napier Earthquake in 1931.

Moana Park Estate was started in 1981, when the first vineyards were planted on what used to be a large sheep station in the Hawkes Bay. Today, they produce a range of wines from their Estate Grown range, Grower’s Range and all the way up to their special Library releases.
