Smooth, rich, elegant & so beautiful

Description: Light gold in colour with a medium intense nose. This complex wine features orange blossom, honeydew melon, orange, apricot, guava and white pepper. Medium+ body and with good acidity and a very long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Best non Condrieu Viognier I’ve had. Far superior in every sense than Yalumba’s Y Series Viognier (see my previous review).

Drink now or in the next 10 of years on its own or pair it with Spicy Honey Glazed BBQ Chicken with Crispy Sweet Potato Fries.

Tasted: 31 Aug 2015

Excellent. Boldly flavoured but incredible subtlety as the layers play out on the palate.

This is a great summer wine. Aromas of orange and lemon. Very smooth not overly acidic or heavy on the citrus flavors, well balanced. It is more of a pleasant lemony flavor than sharp grapefruit taste. Great length. Really nice wine.
