Morton Estate Private Reserve Hawkes Bay Viognier 2007

With apricot and light alcohol to the nose, the texture of this pale gold coloured Viognier felt a little too thick to me at first, but then I found it to be a contributor to a nice warmth.  The wine initially had a hint of bitterness to taste surrounded by apricot and mandarin flavour, but I found the bitterness subsided over time with food.

All in all I think the wine is a nice drop to drink, however I won’t be rushing out to buy another bottle.  If you have a 2007 vintage, I would recommend drinking it now.
