In celebration of our new and improved website and to shine a spotlight on some of our most worthy wines, we’ve decided to run exclusive online Wine of the Month deals until the end of 2018. Each month one special wine will have a fantastic discount, available only through our website.
The month of March means a lot to us here at Obsidian: it’s the beginning of autumn and it’s the time of year where harvest truly gets underway. In light of the season of change, we’ve decided to make our very recently released Reserve Viognier 2015 the premier ‘Wine of the Month’.
Obsidian Reserve Viognier 2015
Viognier (pronounced "vee-on-yay") is an incredibly expressive and aromatic white wine variety originating in France. It is closely related to the Syrah grape variety and is therefore often found blended with Syrah in the Rhone valley and in many Australian regions. On Waiheke Island, our climate is temperate enough to produce beautifully expressive and elegant white wine with Viognier. The variety is known for its bright and bold aromas of apricot, honeysuckle, ginger and lemongrass and its delicate weight and acidity.
"The Obsidian Reserve Viognier 2015 is richly fruited and beautifully aromatic on the nose showing grilled apricot, rockmelon, orange peel and toasted almond characters with subtle spicy complexity. The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and rounded mouthfeel. A sumptuous viognier with powerful fruit and subtle savoury nuances"
