The Crater Rim Waipara Viognier 2016 | 94/100 | 5 Stars
This is opulent, powerful and delectable. The gloriously lifted bouquet shows baked apricot, mango, orange peel and potpourri aromas with hints of honey and spice. The palate is superbly concentrated and weighted, and displays rich texture and plush mouthfeel, leading to a lingering sumptuous finish.
