Intro to Te Mata Zara Viognier –
Te Mata Zara Viognier from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand has a light gold colour with concentrated aromas of white peach, mandarin and jasmine. The soft dry palate opens into complex flavours of apricot, honeycomb and sea salt with a fine long finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Since 1995, Te Mata Estate has led the way with New Zealand’s production of Viognier an exotic grape from France’s Rhône Valley. A luscious gold with brilliant green highlights, Zara is a dream of turkish delight and lemon honey. Enticing aromas of marzipan, peach and jasmine unfold in moreish layers of apricot, lychee and French Vanilla ice cream on the palate. The soft cream notes of New Zealand’s oldest Viognier vines add an exotic, voluptuous weight to Zara, leading to a delicate, refreshing finish.
Zara is affectionately named after Zara Buck, the first born child of the third generation of Te Mata Estates Buck family. Zara spent her childhood playing amongst the vines at the vineyard which is home to this delightful Viognier.
