Hans Family Estate 2017 Viognier (Marlborough)

This deep gold-hued Viognier wears the distinctive Hans Herzog (who grows 26 different varieties!) varsity sweater: rich, unctuous and highly terroir-driven. For now, though, this wine wears the oak on its sleeve. The toasty, buttery aromas are accompanied by layers of flavor: baked pear, pineapple rind, clove, minerals and lees. Full-bodied, earthy, mineral flavors are at the fore on the palate, and the alcohol shows. Underneath lurks the tangy fruit. This could never be accused of dullness, but there are more harmonious wines in the Hans stable. Christina Pickard
