Wine tasting notes

Pale but bright, the 2010 Viognier has intense fruity aromas with hints of apricots and peaches, that continue through to the juicy fruity palate. The delicious fresh finish is long and scented, with stone fruit and citrus complexity.

Winery information

Baron de Badassiere

The Baron de Badassi̬re wines come from the Picpoul de Pinet region, which lies near the coast in the Languedoc. The region benefits from a sunny, warm climate that encourages ripe fruity flavours in the wines, while the coastal breezes help retain freshness and aromatics. The name derives from the Badassi̬re vineyard, situated near the small town of Pom̩rols. In the 18th century, the vineyard belonged to Baron Charles Emmanuel, a colourful character who was rumoured to be the illegitimate son of King Louis XV.

The wines are made exclusively for Liberty by New Zealand winemaker Graeme Paul, along with consultant Matt Thomson, at the Cave de Pom̩rols co-operative. The fruit is sourced from selected vineyards around the Etang de Thau. Picpoul de Pinet is the co-operative

Vinification notes

The grapes were macerated on skins for a few hours, then pressed in the pneumatic press. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 17-19°C for 16 days. No oak was used and the wine was bottled in Spring 2011 to retain freshness and delicate aromatics
