Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion 2023

Fruit from the Perth Hills. Whole-bunch pressed to new and used French oak puncheons. Wild ferment, mlf blocked. Aged on gross lees for 8 months prior to bottling. Viognier is one of the key varieties for Millbrook and it's got a good reputation. It has all the Turkish apricot, red apple, orchard blossom, frangipani and honeysuckle characters that we associate with viognier, but it also has a mineral seam of acidity that scrapes through the wine, keeping things fresh and lively. It's a beautiful wine, again.

Halliday wine companion 2022

Viognier really is the cornerstone variety at Millbrook, nestled in Jarrahdale in Perth's HIlls. Sweet spiced apple, ginger, pepper, mandarin pith, summer apricot and jasmine tea. The palate is fat, slippery and oily, with apricot marmalade and cloudy apple juice in equal measure. The length of flavour is very good, however the intensity of florals and ripe orchard fruit mean this will likely be consumed within 5 years of release - and that will be ok. Because it is delicious.

Rich and unctuous Viognier - world-class!

What a drop! Fruit from the Millbrook Estate, some oak ageing and a rich, fat expression of Viognier - in all the best ways! Better then most Chardys!
