"Estery apricot aromas with hints of ginger; the palate is elegant with an appealing texture, mineral characters and good length. The fresh acidity adds to the drinking enjoyment."
Sunday Tasmanian, Graeme Phillips (Australia), 06 Dec 09
"A fuller, richer ...style... with subtle oak playing a mellowing, softening role and time on lees adding oatmealy, yeasty complexity and depth to the honeyed apricot and citrus fruit flavours, the mouthfeel richly smooth and balanced and with a lovely full, long, soft finish. "
Winery Tasting Notes
The most arresting feature of Viognier is its aromas. Lifted apricot and cherry blossom characters. The oak impact is very slight and adds texture to the palate. The palate features apricot and is full-bodied from glycerol and alcohol. This adds length and the flavours carry to the end and linger. A perfectly framed wine with everything in balance.
While some Northern hemisphere examples do age well, this is best consumed over the short term.
