vintage

Early January brought exceptional growing conditions, with a small amount of rain which lead to enhanced vine health. This allowed for perfect flavour ripeness and moderate sugar levels to be achieved.

winemaking

The fruit was handpicked and whole bunch pressed at 5°C directly to new and seasoned French oak puncheons. With the addition of wild yeast, a natural fermentation was allowed to occur. This wine was then aged within those same puncheons for a four-month period on lees before being blended and lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling in August 2018.

This purrs into the top realm, pumped with aromatic intensity and toned by sensitive use of oak and a waft of phenolics. More phenolics and less acidity would be good. Unleash viognier! Let it be slippery and a bit loose. Exudes ginger, apricot, cinnamon and vanilla pod.

biggest australian chardonnay tasting ever, june 2019

A very sweet and richly fruited viognier that has a wealth of apricot aromas, as well as mangoes and melon. The palate has rich, fleshy and round presence.
