  • Tasting Note: Powerfully aromatic white, blasting out candied ginger and flowers, with notes of green mango, hay and almond on the palate.
  • Food Matching: Aperitif, shell fish and seafood.
  • Vineyard: The 2016 Vintage started a few days earlier than ever before due to the dry conditions, but relieving rains arrived in late January/ early February, reducing stress for the final stages of ripening. The earlier harvested fruit achieved fruit ripeness at relatively low Baumes due to the rain event. These wines are bright, spicy and vibrant with a lovely long acid and elegance. As vintage progressed the concentration grew and the colour intensified, resulting in more weighty wines without overripe characters.
  • Vinification: Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and transferred to stainless steel basket presses. Fermentation is long and moderately cool, retaining fresh fruit characters. About 4% underwent wild fermentation for extra complexity. 14% of the Viognier is fermented in aged French and American Oak. Blending occurs only in the final stages of the winemaking process.
  • Awards and Press News: There’s a little marsanne in the mix here. This has attractive apricot viognier fruit on the nose with some sweet florals. Fleshy feel on the palate with a riot of stone-fruit, fresh-citrus and green-mango flavors. Such good value and so much flavor on offer. I like the textural qualities, too. Drink now. Screw cap. 91/100 Nick Stocks, Jamessuckling.com
