Blue Poles Viognier 2010 - Margaret River
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
Pale golden yellow in colour with a nose of subtle white peach, tangerine with a hint of baking and ginger spice. The palate is rich and balanced with the fruit confirmed and the integrated acidity giving this wine a lovely lift and a nice clean length. Can be consumed immediately, but has the capacity to age gracefully in a cool cellar for 2-4 years.
Food matches for this wine include seafood (scallops and fresh WA crayfish suit the wine perfectly), asian styled dishes (especially steamed fish with soy sauce and greens – delightful), and creamy poultry dishes.
Sealed under screwcap to ensure the wine made by us arrives to you as we intended it to.
The growing season in 2010 was a classic vintage in Margaret River due to the long even growing season with minimal heat spikes. Our Viognier avoided much of the problems of the year and set a good crop and it required little effort to bring these grapes through to full flavour and ripeness. 2010 has been considered an excellent vintage for white wines in the region and will produce many classic wines.
All the grapes were handpicked in the cool of a very late evening, placed in a cool room overnight, and lightly pressed at the winery at the very start of the day, thus preserving all the aromatics and richness of the juice. Picked in a single tranche, the fruit came off in good shape though we did see some ripeness variation which is common in Viognier.
Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)
In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
