Tasting Notes

colour

Vibrant golden straw.

aroma

The wine displays savoury fennel and bright green apples with a spicy hit of ginger on the nose.

palate

Loaded with apricots and pithy mandarin with a restrained, linear acidity offering a rich yet refreshing mouthfeel.

cellaring

Best enjoyed over the next three to five years.

Technical

vintage

The 2021 vintage was moderate, mild and a wonderful year for Viognier. These great conditions resulted in beautifully ripe, varietally pure wines that are brimming with perfect, delicate, natural acidity.

winemaking

Individual parcels of fruit were hand-picked in the cool of the night and were pressed directly to the tank. Winemaker Emma Gillespie describes looking for “versatility with this wine, allowing it to be enjoyed whatever the occasion, achieved with combining fruit from different regions, as well as how the wine is made in the winery.” She aimed to enhance the beautiful Viognier characteristics with wine being left on lees for three months to create a deliciously crunchy texture.

Reviews

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion 2023

Fennel flower, green apples, apricots, a touch of hessian, a flick of brine and ginger. The palate is more structural, more phenolic and more restrained than expected for the variety, but this is no bad thing. It might allow the drinker to have more than one glass, which is often the pitfall of viognier: it's bloody delicious, but it's too rich for its own good. The food match on the back of the bottle is rabbit and fennel risotto, and if you've been to the Millbrook restaurant, you'll be salivating at that.

Outstanding wine

Too good to be true! Textural, moreish, absolutely divine expression of Viognier. Reviewed by Halliday with top points, this wine is outstanding for the price. Buy by the dozen!
