Description

Originating in France’s northern Rhone, Viognier offers an opulent and almost daring contrast to its more disciplined and restrained cousins Marsanne & Roussanne. Intense apricot, honey, orange blossom and rose water aromatics leap from the glass, followed in short order by a complex mélange of mango, lemon curd, cinnamon and musk. It’s all well controlled though. Sure, it’s a little bit showy – as it should be – but far from over the top. The palate, too, manages that same sense of balance between power, breadth and finesse. It’s long, mouthfilling, gently viscous, and almost unctuous, while still remaining cool, dry and refreshingly cleansing, with a wonderful sense of volume and expansiveness on the back palate. Enjoy chilled over the next couple of years. – Sandra de Pury

Luscious ripe fruit, not too much, leads with stone fruit, apricots and kernels, glâcé pineapple, all drizzled with ginger spiced cream. Soft, pleasing and holds its own. 93 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion August 2018

An appley nose that also incorporates very attractive aromas of white peaches, pomelo, apricots and dried spices. Full-bodied with lots of layers of stone fruit and refreshing acidity to match, culminating in a round yet crunchy finish. Drink now. Screw cap.93 points. Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com June 2018

The 2016 Viognier manages to tap into the ripe, exotic side of Viognier’s florals and apricot-like fruit without tipping over into an oily, alcoholic morass. It’s medium- to full-bodied but stays calm and collected, with a soft, silky mouthfeel, authentic varietal flavors and a lingering finish. It’s a rare, successful balancing act with this finicky variety. 91+ points. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate June 2018
