The Lunaka Viognier from Central Valley Chile offers a pale straw colour with yellow, greenish nuances in the glass.
Its aroma is slightly floral with some tropical fruit alongside the classic apricot notes this variety is known for.
On the palate tropical fruits continue contained within a big nicely textured body, all completed with a present acidity and a touch of charming bitterness that makes this wine juicy, fresh and long.
The Lunaka Viognier from Central Valley Chile sources 80% of its grapes from the Colchagua Valley. A warm valley with Deep alluvial soils composed of clay and sand. This allows full ripening. The remaining 20% in the blend comes from cooler areas of Curicó Valley, which gives the wine a nice acidity.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed, to minimise phenolic extract. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks, and the temperature carefully controlled (10°-12°C). After alcoholic fermentation, the wine was left without sulphur on lees for 8 weeks, allowing for a very interesting yeast autolysis character to develop. The lees were stirred once a week. Modern winemaking techniques used, excluding air during all the winemaking process, thus ensuring the maximum expression of the primary fruit flavours and aromas
An excellent food match with mild. Creamy curries or a tagine with apricot.
