Matavino Matakana Viognier 2015 $25 ★★★½

Matakana is like an El Dorado for rich, aromatic white wines – and this viognier is definitely in it’s happy place here.  Grown in Warkworth, the wine oozes sunshine and classic apricot kernel characters alongside hints of jasmine, ripe peach and a seam of sea salt.  I like the slippery, oily character of this wine because it bodes well if you’re thinking of serving it with milk-poached pork belly with crispy crackling.
