Churton, Viognier 2019
5 in stock
Sam and Mandy Weaver planted their vines on an undulating ridge line between the Waihopai and Omaka valleys in in 1997. This was (and remains) the height of idiosyncracy in Marlborough, where most vines are planted on the fertile soils of the valley floor, allowing for full mechanisation. At Churton, everything is done by hand, on low cut canes.
This European style is reflected in the wine. This is the essence of Churton – the vivacity of New World wines, tempered with a mineral depth you might expect from the Northern Rhône. There is tremendous and age worthy acidity here, a tightness and tension typical of top quality wine.
Enjoy with seafood, creamy cheeses, or white meats.
