Viognier 2009 Limited Release

Tasting Notes

Medium straw with yellow hues.  An attractive nose of ripe stonefruit, citrus blossom, ginger and sandalwood.  Ripe peach and apricot fill the mid palate, time in bottle and barrel fermentation providing a rich palate with a creamy oatmeal texture, oak provides length and balance.

Winemaking

Fermented in one year old French oak puncheons and left on lees for three months to further enhance mouthfeel. This wine spent a total of 6 months in oak.

Cellaring

With its incredible depth of fruit, and appealing mid palate texture, Viognier is a very versatile food wine. An ideal partner to prawn and crab ravioli with citrus beurre blanc, or a mild Thai chicken curry with coconut, coriander and fragrant rice.  Enjoy now.

"A Rhône variety from the south of France finds a perfect home in Rutherglen, where our long, dry autumn enables it to fully ripen and produce its tantalizingly complex flavours." - Colin Campbell
