Grapes for the La Bri Viognier 2021 were handpicked a week apart in February – to allow for perfect fruit and ripeness selection. Overnight cold storage of the grapes to preserve the fruit character during whole bunch pressing. After settling, the clear juice was racked off its gross lees into two 2nd-fill French oak barrels (600L and 300L). The wines were aged for 8 months before bottling. A total of 1,075 bottles were produced. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Creamy pear and apricot nose with hints of wood spice.

Palate: Elegantly rich and broad velvety palate.

Finish: Lingering dry peach pip tail.

Given to the De Villiers family in 1694 as one of the original nine farms given to the Huguenots, La Bri is derived from the French word for shelter. Passing through a number of owners, Robin Hamilton bought the farm in 1997 and General Manager and winemaker Irene Waller, previously winemaker at the Graham Beck Winery in Robertson for 6 years, joined La Bri in 2010.
