Blend Information

100% Viognier

In The Vineyard

Vrede en Lust has been producing Viognier from Simonsberg-Paarl region since 2007 and in 2010 the first crop of Viognier from Elgin were harvested. As the vineyards matured we noticed that the two styles (warmer and cooler) complement each other when it comes to wine style and since 2012 only one Viognier has been produced under the the Vrede en Lust range. A collaboration of terroirs – this wine showcases the best of both worlds. The abundant aromatics from Simonsberg-Paarl, with the more refined aromas and intricate spice palate of the Elgin fruit.


In The Cellar

The grapes were crushed late in February and the juice settled in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation took place in 225L new French and Hungarian oak barrels, and a percentage in stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation, the wine was aged on the lees for a few months and the components blended before bottling.
